Organiser's Description

Due to adverse weather this event has been rescheduled to Friday August 2nd with a 6:30pm start. All other details are correct.

KILMAURS GALA invites you to run the 12th annual Kilmaurs Gala 5k Fun Run on Wednesday 31st July 2019. 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.

 

ELECTRONIC TIMING

2019 will continue with electronic timing courtesy of Whats My Time. Pick-up your chip and number on the night of the event at registration.

 

SCOTTISH ATHLETICS

Kilmaurs 5K is held Under UK Athletics Rules and is a scottishathletics Licensed Event.

THE COURSE

The run starts on the running track in Morton Park in Kilmaurs village. The first 1.5Km are within the confines of the park and then it’s out on to the Kilmarnock Road and countryside. The highest point of the course is at the 3.5Km mark and from this point is downhill all the way back to the track again for the finish.
