Supernova Run

Run and be the star for animals in need!

Do you know what a kelpie is? It is a shape-shifting spirit of Scottish and Irish folklore that is said to inhabit river and streams, usually in the shape of a horse or sometimes a human. It is also the name of the largest equine sculpture in the world, The Kelpies, located in Falkirk, Scotland which happens to be the location of the Supernova Run on March 16, 2024.

The Supernova Run is a 5k fun run for everybody but most especially for those who love animals and want to support the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Scotland’s only all animal emergency service who has been helping animals in Scotland since 1839. Funds raised from this event will go to the organization’s rescue, rehome, rehabilitation, and animal welfare law championing efforts.

What is the Supernova Run?

The Supernova Run is a stunning 5k route around the world-famous Kelpies in Falkirk Helix Park. The Kelpies, which are mythical creatures, come to life when they are lit up at dusk. Runners will snake their way around the awe-inspiring, 300-tonne structures and be immersed in an enchanting journey of light.

Entrants should don their lights and fluorescents to help shine bright on the route. Less focus on time and more focus on fun!

Who can take part in the Supernova Run?

The Supernova Run is for everybody – and we mean everybody! From grandparents to grandchildren, it’s a wonderful opportunity to get the full family involved to raise vital funds for Scotland’s animals! The ever-changing color of the Kelpies creates a brilliant, fun atmosphere for participants as they take on the 5k. Children under the age of 16 must have adult supervision.

Ethologist and conservationist Jane Goodall, said ““Only if we understand… can we care. Only if we care… will we help them. Only if we help… shall they be saved.” Sign up to run for the Scottish SPCA here and be the star that lights up the lives of these animals in need.
