Forres Harriers Brodie Castle 10k
(under SAL permit)
Sunday 5 November 2017.
A big welcome back to those who joined us for last two years races - we hope to make this year's race bigger and better than last year but every bit as much fun for all involved.
Formerly known as the Dyke 10k now starting and finishing in the spectacular grounds of the 16th century Brodie Castle, a National Trust for Scotland property. Following much of the route of the old Dyke 10k race but now starting and finishing in the spectacular grounds of the castle. We don't think that there are many events in the country that offer the runner a better view as they race towards a race finish line - a tree lined route to a picturesque castle in lovely grounds.
This year the race is held under SAL permit. Around a certified accurately measured course. UK Association of Course Measurers Cert no. 2015412.
Medal or memento and soup for all finishers.
