Skirt the Skeith 12k
25 Jun 2023
Welcome back to Dalry's 12k road race which has been organised through the Community Development Hub and supported by the Dalry Sports Club as a community event for the local and surrounding areas. We had such good feedback at our inaugural race last year that we have decided to make it a yearly event. Our winner ran the race in 46.21 so all you budding runners you have a record to beat !
The race will be held on Sunday the 25th of June 2023 at 10am and is limited to 200 entries. Entrants should be aged 17 and over on the day of the race and by entering you are confirming you understand that participation at this event is at your own risk.
The race starts at Dalry Public Park in North Ayrshire and runs up Blair Road, around Auchinskeith, along the walls of the Historic Blair House and back to the park. It is a hilly scenic route and uses some narrow roads therefore will be unable to accomodate walkers or dogs.
A map will be put up onto our local facebook page nearer the time. dalrycommunitydevhub.co.uk
The road will not be shut during the race so runners require to be vigilant. The route will be well marked and there will be Marshalls at road crossings and other key points along the route so please ensure you obey their directions. Please do not wear headphones during the race.
There will be a waterstation around 7kms into the race at the entrance to Blair House. Please also bring your own water as it may be a warm day.
The route is challenging and hilly and the terrain can vary throughout the race and as it is a road race we cannot rule out any pot holes or uneven surfaces so please run with due care.
