Sport Your Trainers for Commonwealth Day

People in Edinburgh are being encouraged to swap their usual footwear for trainers on Monday 14 March 2011.

The nationwide event on Commonwealth Day has been devised to support the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The campaign was launched in Edinburgh by Council Leader Jenny Dawe and local diver Grace Reid, who was the youngest member of Team Scotland at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The national "Sport Your Trainers" day will encourage everyone from business leaders, schoolchildren and doctors to politicians, office workers and housewives to ditch their normal footwear and wear their trainers for the day to support Glasgow 2014.

Cost: Free
