Hello and thank you for taking interest in the running group called: DB12Run
This is a free jogging/running group for people with Type 1-2 Diabetes or a medical condition or for someone who would just like to get active and make some new friends.
There are other groups out there in the Lanarkshire area but this group it’s not about the times or the pace
Date & Location
Every Wednesday night at 7pm & Saturday morning at 8:45am
Where do you meet?
There is a large car park situated outside the boathouse gym at Strathclyde park Motherwell. There is other running groups at that time – however if you can’t find me I will be wearing a DB12Run T-shirt or there will be a small group conjugated at the stairwells of the boathouse gym
What to bring?
Its Scottish weather – T shirt & shorts preferably and appropriate footwear such as running/trail shoes. Don’t wear army boots or flat shoes, it does not do any favours for your feet and calf muscles and you will be in pain or potentially resulting in injury.
If you are diabetic please also make sure you bring some sugar sweets and your tester with you – if you feel unwell please inform – I carry sweets with me an drink in my bag at all times
How much does the group DB12Run cost?
A bit about myself
My name is Chris and I am a type 1 diabetic since 22nd Nov 2008. I have done seven marathons and sixteen half marathons and three triathlons in the past four years across the UK raising money for the Nicola Murray foundation ovarian cancer and diabetes Scotland. I created the group DB12Run as I am very passionate about being active and I wanted to give back to the community

hope to see you at the next run!
