13th Kilmaurs Gala 5K Fun Run
29 Jul 2020
KILMAURS GALA invites you to run the 13th annual Kilmaurs Gala 5k Fun Run on Wednesday 29th July 2020. The event was initially organised for fun runners and those new to running and has continued to attract great reviews for this approach. However, in recent years the winning times have all been sub 16 minutes indicating that the faster racers are attracted to the course as well.
2020 will continue with electronic timing courtesy of Whats My Time. Pick-up your chip and number on the night of the event at registration.
Kilmaurs Gala 5k is held Under UK Athletics Rules and is a scottishathletics Licensed Event.
There will be the restricted on field car-parking available. However, as this is a grass surface and Scottish summertime being what it is we cannot guarantee that the surface will be dry. Additional near-by parking is available as below for both local car-parks and on street parking.
