Organiser's Description

Alford 10K


In the third running of Alford’s 10k race, you’ll run through Haughton Park, through the glorious Donside countryside, before finishing in front of family and friends on the track at the Grampian Transport Museum.  The number of places have been increased to 400 this year due to the success of the event.

Whether you’re looking for a new PB, you’re in it to win it, or you’re looking for a fun run in the country and want a new get fit challenge, our scenic run is suitable for all levels, goals and abilities.

Each kilometer will be marked around the course and we will have friendly marshals cheering you round the whole way.

There’s lots for your supporters to do whilst they wait for your return.  They can enjoy the award-winning Grampian Transport Museum.

Each runner will receive a finishers t-shirt and medal.  Please note that if you enter after 13th June you may not be guaranteed your desired size of t-shirt due to lead times on production.
