Olympic gold medallist hurdler Colin Jackson helped launch the city's leg of the Tesco Great School Run, which involves more than one million kids around the UK.
Glasgow was the last leg of the race, with youngsters and their parents from schools including Cadder Primary, Glasgow Gaelic Primary and St Benedict's Primary, completing the two kilometre run.
Three-time world record holder, Colin, said: "The Tesco Great School Run is a great way to get children active. It's fantastic to see so many children getting so excited ahead of the run."
Now in it's eighth year, the campaign aims to encourage children, their family, friends and teachers to take part in exercise for fun, while promoting physical activity as part of every school and family's lifestyle.
As part of the run, children were fundraising for Mary's Meals, the charity partner of the run, which sets up school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities.
Cathryn Crawford, head teacher at Cadder Primary, said: "It has really captured the children's imagination – highlighting the importance of exercise and healthy eating."
Scottish track star Liz McColgan was also on hand to cheers the kids along the way.
Prior to the race, the children also got involved in two themed events, with the 'Ready' phase teaching them about motivation and building enthusiasm and the 'Steady' phase teaching them about nutrition for energy and wellbeing.
Tesco Corporate Responsibility and Community Director, Ruth Girardet, said: "Since its launch in 2005, over five million children have taken part in the Tesco Great School Run.
"It just goes to show that sport and exercise can be an extremely fun part of everyday life and it's brilliant to see that with more than 1.25 million participants, more children than ever have taken part this year."
