Organiser's Description

Cannonball Events invites you to participate on Saturday 7th September 2019 in the inaugural Go! Festival Ayr. Half Marathon, 10k and family Bike Rides all on closed roads. 

Following the success of our 2 pilot events in 2017 and 2018, we have used this experience and our vast race organising knowledge to bring you one of the biggest races north of the Border. This will be Ayrshire's first mass participation half marathon event. The route is steeped in Scottish history and offers great surfaces and a course design intended to offer good opportunities for personal best times.

More than just a run...
These events are more than just running events; they are experiences, memory-forming runs. The experience will leave you feeling that you have been part of a unique event in one of Scotland's finest coastal towns. We have a night aerobatic flying display, firework display, funfair, pipe band and much much more…
