Dunblane Virtual Road Race

30 May 2021 - 30 Jun 2021

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

Organiser's Description

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions we think it is very unlikely we will be able to run a physical Dunblane Road Race this year. So we have decided to open up two options for a Virtual Dunblane Road Race 2021

The 2020 Dunblane 12 km Road Race will open soon for entries.

The 2020 Dunblane 2 km Youth Race is closed for 2021 but will be back in 2022

Virtual Road Race Day will be SUNDAY 30th MAY 2021

On Sunday 30th May 2021 we will invite you all to run a 12Km route in your local area and submit your times to our virtual timing site. We will provide Race Goodies to everyone who enters including an eco-friendly sustainably sourced, wooden medal and a Dunblane Road Race Buff (snood). You will also be able to download a completion certificate with you time and virtual race position. 

We know that a lot of you really enjoy the Dunblane Road Race course so for those of you who wish to run the actual course we are going to set up another virtual timing site which will be open from Sunday 30th May to Wednesday 30th June and will allow you to run the course anytime you want and submit your time.

We hope that by providing the two options we can get a lot more people to enjoy the challenge of a 12km race without the pressure of a big race!!

Encourage your friendly and enter now.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions we think it is very unlikely we will be able to run a physical Dunblane Youth Race this year so we have postponed this until 2022

The Youth Race is approximately 2 km long and follows a mixed surface route starting on Dunblane High Street, routing around the Allan Water, over the Faerie Bridge and into Memorial Park, back via Bridgend and finishing near Andy Murray's Gold Post Box. The event will be heavily marshalled and the route clearly marked. Most of the route is off road - there is a small on road section close to the finish which will be closely marshalled.

MINIMUM age on race day is 9 years old. MAXIMUM age for the youth race is 15 years old on race day - anyone 16 or older can enter the 12km race.
