Organiser's Description

Support Perth Road Runners and enter our Virtual Tay 10K Race!

 

BACKGROUND

Like many running clubs this year, we have had to cancel our two main events of the year – the fantastic Tay 10 and the legendary Brig Bash, due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. We are incredibly sad to have had to do this, and like many other clubs, this has had a financial impact on us, but the health and safety of our runners and helpers is always our primary concern.

In these difficult and uncertain times, our mental and physical health is more important than ever and running certainly helps both. However, it’s hard to find motivation to run with no events on the horizon. So, to encourage you to stay active and give you a target to aim for whilst races and club runs are cancelled, we are delighted to bring you our Virtual Tay 10K race!

 

RACE DISTANCE

10K – yes, we know, the Tay 10 race is traditionally a 10 mile race however, we understand that many of you, for various reasons, haven’t managed to get out as much as you’d have liked. For that reason, our Virtual Tay 10 race is 10K which is hopefully more achievable.
