ALLAN SCALLY ROAD RELAY

The Allan Scally Memorial Road Relay Race first appeared on the Scottish running calendar on 22 November 1969. The race commemorates the work done for Shettleston Harriers by their former coach, Allan Scally, a professional 10 mile world champion, who had died in April 1966 at the age of 62. The main force behind the club’s success in the 1950s and ‘60s, he was also the coach to many very good athletes including Joe McGhee, 1954 Empire Games Marathon winner. 

 

The race was initially a 4 x 4.8 mile road relay on a course that remained unaltered until 2009. In 2019, the race was changed to a 4 x 5km distance.
