Hospitality Elf Festive Fun Run

About Hospitality Elf Festive Fun Run

Marking one month to go until their first ever run, Glasgow’s Hospitality Health charity is calling out Glaswegians to come Elf Yourself on its new festive run which helps raise important funds for the licensed trade.

Organised in partnership with the newly opened Clayton hotel, on Glasgow’s Clydeside, The Hospitality Elf fun run takes place on Saturday 16th December from 9am. You can walk, jog or run the 5k, with fancy dress encouraged. The route takes you along the Clyde walkway and around the perimeter of Glasgow Green, then circling back to the hotel for a well earned hot drink and some snacks.

Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, with running registrations now open. Cost per runner is £5 with all funds going to the Hospitality Health charity. Set up in 2018, the Scottish charity provides essential mental health and wellbeing support to the licensed trade.

The idea for the run happened over a chance conversation and one of the aims for their inaugural event is to promote health and wellbeing but also sustainability. The group of hard working elves (volunteers and charity trustees) would recommend bringing your own water/sports drink with you on the day in a reusable bottle.

Gordon McIntyre, founder of Hospitality Health said: “What a great idea Hazel from the Clayton had; get the family out on a Saturday morning for fresh air and exercise before the Christmas madness hit!’ In doing so, we can raise funds to support the charity. The fundraising will go towards the training of staff in the industry with a qualification in Mental Health First Aid. It’s been a tough time for the staff in the hospitality industry and we are supporting them in their wellbeing and promoting positive action towards their mental health. Thanks to the team at Clayton hotel for all their support”.

Hazel Galloway, Clayton Hotel general manager is delighted to partner with Hospitality Health. She comments: “Gordon and the team at Hospitality Health are so passionate about helping those that work in the industry by providing invaluable information to anyone that may be facing work or personal worries. We have communicated the Hospitality Health website to all our
team and will continue to remind them that there is a wider support network of like-minded professionals who they can connect with should they wish. This is a fantastic charity that is current and needed in an industry that whilst is very rewarding can be very tough!”


Registrations for the Hospitality Elf fun run are now open. Head online to register, and get the gang together to raise funds for a very important charity this Christmas.
