David Scott

Ambassador

I started running in my 30s, when my brother encouraged me to sign up for a marathon. Since then I discovered the world of ultra-marathons, and have travelled the length of Scotland and beyond, taking part in as many as I can fit in, including the 238-mile Race Across Scotland and the West Highland Way race.

In 2016 I set up a beginners’ running club – the Fit Like Joggers – a nod to the Aberdeen phrase “Fit Like” which means “How are you?”. This group has gone from strength to strength, initially focusing on the Couch to 5k programme but now offering up to 14 different run sessions a week, and attracting hundreds of participants.

I also organise an event called the BrewDog Run – a 21 mile fun run, which starts at the BrewDog bar in Aberdeen, and runs up to the BrewDog brewery in Ellon. It always sells out straight away, and last year was voted the UK’s number one fun run, and placed silver for the best event medal in the Running Awards.

Covid has impacted on some of our activities, but the running group is back again, and we can’t wait to relaunch the next BrewDog Run in the summer.
