Supernova Forth Road Bridge

Support Bighearted Scotland by taking part in the Supernova Forth Road Bridge.

Supernova Forth Road Bridge

Join in on the first- ever Supernova Forth Road Bridge! On Saturday, 2nd November 2024, the iconic Forth Road Bridge will be completely closed for you to walk, jog or run 5k. Celebrate its 60th anniversary in a magical, immersive evening of light and colour, as we change thousands of lives for the better.

The Supernova Forth Road Bridge is an exciting night- time 5k event suitable for all abilities. Walk, jog or run 5k across the iconic Forth Road Bridge to raise money for brilliant causes. This is a great event whether you’re looking to hit a personal best or take on a fun challenge.

Expressions of interest to participate in this event is already unprecedented. As such, a ballot process will be used to allocate places for this exclusive experience. You can start a ballot application now.


What’s in it for you?

You can look forward to;

  • Walking, jogging, or running a 5K route, enjoying a series of spectacular light and colour features all the way. The event is completely accessible so is suitable for all abilities. Decide your own pace too! You can run at the speed of light, or take your time and snap a few pictures as you go!
  • Reconnect with the Forth Road Bridge, as it celebrates it’s 60th birthday. Many of us remember crossing it in a car or on the pedestrian footpaths, but with it being completely closed to traffic for the evening, this is an opportunity to tread those carriageways on foot.
  • Transport to and from the Forth Road Bridge from the Supernova travel hub, where your experience will begin.
  • Before you reach that start line, we’ll make sure you’re ready for it by participating in a fun Supernova warm-up full of easy moves and stretches.
  • You will have a special LED Supernova head torch to help you light up the night. You can take this home with you afterwards.
  • After finishing your experience, you will receive your exclusive medal and finishers pack as a memento of your evening!
