The Baldoon RUNway

13 Oct 2018

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Registration from 10.30am am to 11:40am, 13 October 2018
Entry up to 11:40am subject to places remaining available on the day.
Start at 12.00 noon on the airfield (11.30am for any 10k walkers).

This is a charity fundraising venture to raise funds for The Stroke Association (Scotland).  All money raised in Scotland stays in Scotland.

Because this is an old WWII airfield, it is a very 'level' run, but don't please confuse level with smooth!  The concrete is compromised in many places, so care needs to be taken.  The best part of the concrete is reserved for the 1k to accommodate wheelchairs.

The music, although varied, will feature a WWII theme, featuring Big Band Sound/Glenn Miller.

£12.00 (£6.00 for -16s).  On the day entry £15.00 (£8.00 for -16s).
The 1k is suitable for walkers or runners -  children, the less fit, Stroke survivors, wheelchairs.  If you're not sure whether or not you can complete the 1k, don't worry; you can complete as much as you are able, then ride home in style.        
The 5k is suitable for runners or walkers - adults (and -16s with parental permission) and involves one lap of the airfield perimeter.

The 10k is suitable for runners - adults, and involves two laps of the airfield perimeter.  Anyone wishing to walk the 10k should note that their start time will be 1/2 an hour earlier at 11.30am.

There are no showering facilities, but those travelling a distance can use a changing area in a nearby business premises kindly granted by B Thomson or at the weighbridge.  There are toilet facilities in both premises.  The first 'greeter' will meet you there and keep you right.

A medal, water (thanks to Scottish Water), yoghurt drink (thanks to Rowan Glen) and banana (thanks to Sainsbury's) will be presented to all finishers.

A top quality barbecue will be run by Stephen Cronnie, the local family butcher, famous for his excellent burgers!

There will be a Raffle on the day.
