PODFather Stirling 10k and 2k fun run

11 Sep 2022

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Start Time: 10k- 10:15am

2k- 9:30am


Central AC are delighted to welcome you to the 21st running of the PODFather Stirling 10k with the reintroduction of our kids 2k fun run.


Run on our traditional course, our super fast route offers fantastic views of Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills. We have had the course officially measured and is certified to be accurate. In 2021 we had 33 of our top 50 finishers running a pb and in 2019 36 of the top 50 finishers ran their best every time! Despite the super fast times recorded each year our race is not only for the speedy runners! It doesn’t matter if you run 30mins or 1h30mins, everyone is welcome and the last finisher will get just as big a cheer as the first finisher! Our aim is to give all runners the chance of doing their best time but enjoying it whilst they do so.


Thanks to the support of our sponsors we are now able to bring some race improvements to not only help you run your pb, but to enjoy yourself as you do. Some features for 2022 are:

-Pacers to 40,50 and 60mins. Easily identifiable by carrying a flag with target time.

-A piper at the most scenic parts of the course as you approach Wallace Monument.

-FREE pre and post race physio thanks to Life Fit Wellness.

-All entrants will be given the option of a race tshirt, or if you would prefer, thanks to us working with Trees not Tees, we can plant a tree in your name with certification and picture emailed to you.

-Ladies fit tshirts available (if opted for)

-Clock at half-way for 5k split time

-Goody bag to all finishers

-Early bird discount
