The Ceres 5 mile Road Race

25 Jun 2022

Organiser's Description

Ceres 5 mile Road Race

In Aid of:- Prostate Scotland & Ceres Highland Games

The race will be held on Saturday 25th June starting at 11:00

The Ceres Games are the oldest free games in Scotland. There has been a market and games held here at the end of June, every year (except for war and during the period of the 1746 Act of Proscription) since 1314. In that year, the charter to do so was given to the people of the village by Robert Bruce in recognition of their support at the Battle of Bannockburn.

It is appropriate that we should take up the Bruce's offer to enjoy our midsummer Games. As usual, the games will be a cheerful mix of pipe music, dancing, wrestling, heavy events, cycling and running.

This year will be the inaugural 5 mile road race

IMPORTANT - Scottish Government Covid-19 Guidance must be followed before, during and after the race. Full details can be found here: https://www.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/
