10th Kilmaurs Gala 5K Fun Run

26 Jul 17

KILMAURS GALA invites you to run the 10th annual Kilmaurs Gala 5k Fun Run on Wednesday 26th July 2017. 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

2017 will continue with electronic timing courtesy of Whats My Time. Pick-up your chip and number on the night of the event at registration.

 

ENTRY FEES

Kilmaurs Gala will pay the SAL surcharge for those runners not members of Scottish Athletics. We aim to encourage all runners to take part and not to be financially disadvantaged. The ONLY race that we know of in Scotland that makes this gesture.

 

CAR PARKING 

There will be the usual in-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.

CoS Car Park, Kirkton Rd - 2 minute walk to registration and race start.

Weston Tavern Car Park, Fenwick Rd - 3 minute walk to registration and race start.

Scotrail Car Park, Crofthead Rd - 5 minute walk to registration and race start.

Opposite Kilmaurs Primary and within Kilmaurs Primary, Sunnyside - 4 minute walk to registration and race start.

Kilmarnock Rd, on-street parking - 2 minute walk to registration and race start.

 

REGISTRATION

Registration is in the Morton Park (KA3 2RB) with (limited) changing and (limited) toilets and a secure baggage area. We have increased the number of toilets available from previous years events.

  

REGISTRATION OPENS AT 5:30pm. AS A PRE-ENTRY YOU ONLY NEED TIME TO COLLECT YOUR CHIP & NUMBER. HOWEVER, AS REGISTRATION IS ALWAYS BUSY PLEASE COME EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.

 

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.
