The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) features the SEC Centre– five interconnected exhibition and meeting spaces, the iconic 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo and our most recent addition, The SSE Hydro – a 13,000 capacity concert, sporting and special events arena. With its infinite flexibility, the campus has gone from strength to strength and, with planned expansion and development, will continue to position Glasgow on the world stage.
Designed by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners, the SEC Armadillo is a Glasgow landmark with a unique style and practical, comfortable facilities for up to 3,000.

Race the Roof, Scotland’s ﬁrst tower running challenge, takes place on Sunday 20th August at the iconic SSE Hydro. Set to attract over 1000 participants, the event challenges individuals and teams to ‘Race the Roof’ in aid of Music Therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland.
Runners will set off from a staggered start, around the SSE Hydro venue before tackling the stairs to reach the finish line at the roof of the arena for that ‘selfie’ moment! The 1.9km course will be a test for the hardened athlete but is also achievable for those aged 16 and over with a reasonable fitness level.
After completing the challenge runners and supporters can enjoy food, massages and music from live DJs throughout the afternoon. A great opportunity for families, friends and colleagues to dust off the running shoes, get active and raise money for a brilliant cause.
