Organiser's Description

Auchterarder 10K Chilli Trail Race.

Saturday 6th November 2021. 

Starting at 11am.

WE ARE BACK!  Finally after what has been a challenging year for everyone we are back bringing you a fun, safe and friendly event.  A very warm welcome to the return of our 10K Chilli Trail Race 2021! This event is organised by Five Star Active (www.facebook.com/fivestaractive)

Please join us on our facebook page to get all the latest news www.facebook.com/Auchterarderrunningfestival/

COVID19 guidance - We shall keep a close eye on the latest Scottish Government and therefore Scottish Athletics rules and guidance around outdoor running events and ensure that this event follows the latest measures and requirements.  As it stands now, we are so hopeful that this event will go ahead as a safe mass start but if we need to, due to changes in guidance, we shall change things slightly such as creating starting waves (most likely to be waves between 9am and 11am) to ensure this race is safe.

Please note –Runners must be age 17 or above on the day of the race.  Headphones on this course are NOT allowed (although bone conduction headphones are permitted).  Before entering, please note the race entry terms and conditions.

Entry Fee – £24 (plus entry central administration fees).  Online entry only.  Online entries will close on 5th November or when race limit is met. There will be no entries on the day.  In the unlikely event of the race not being allowed to go ahead due to COVID19 we will do everything we can to create a virtual/hybrid experience for everyone.  In addition (again very unlikely) if the event has to be cancelled owing to forces outside the organisers control, we regret that NO entry fees can be refunded after entries have been processed.  We do not operate a deferment system.  We will offer the following - 50% refunds (minus EntryCentral processing fees) will be issued to any runner who withdraws from the event. Refunds will only be given if the event is full and the runners place can be filled from the waiting list.  

Registration – All runners must register to collect their number and timing chip.  Registration will open at 9am and close at 10.30am from the Aytoun Hall in Auchterarder.  For safety reasons please do not swap numbers with other runners.  Runners must collect their own race number and timing chip IN PERSON. ID checks will be carried out so please be prepared for this and ensure you have some form of ID with you.  Please ensure personal details are entered onto the back of the number so bring a pen!

Baggage - Unsecured baggage storage will be available at registration.  The race organisers take no responsibility for any items stored before, during or after the race.

Race Briefing – There will be a race safety brief emailed out to all runners the week before the event to go over any safety issues and give the opportunity for runners to ask any questions. 

Start time – The race will start prompt 11am.

Race Route - So, what makes the Chilli Trail Race so hot?? A closer look at the GPS map of the route lends a big clue, it's the distinctive shape of a Chilli Pepper!! Starting out in the town of Auchterarder the route pierces into the foothills of the Ochil Hills, with a variety of surfaces, views to die for, forest trails, steady uphills and exhilarating downhills and even a couple of stream crossings we think our Chilli Route has it all. Come see for yourself and experience the 'hottest trail race on the planet'!!

There will be a cut off at 2 hours (approx. 20 minutes per mile)

Please follow all instructions from our race marshalls as they are there to ensure your safety. 

The spectacular race route will be emailed out to all runners prior to the race and will also be on the facebook page. 

Goody Bag – All runners will receive a snood and a bespoke Chilli Trail Race 2021 medal.  

Prizes – There will be prizes for the top 3 Male and Females.

Car Parking – There will be plenty of on-street car parking around the start area in Auchterarder.
