The Baldoon RUNway

14 Oct 2017

Registration from 10.30am am to 11:40 am, 14 October 2017
Entry on the day up to 11:40 subject to places remaining available on the day.
Start at 12.00 noon on the airfield.

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 musical theme will have a WWII theme, featuring Big Band Sound/Glenn Miller - and maybe a surprise!

£12.00 (£6.00 for kids).  On the day entry £15.00 (£8.00 for kids).
The 1k is suitable for walkers or runners -  kids, the less fit, Stroke survivors, wheelchairs.  Not sure if 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 kids 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.  There is also a single toilet there.

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

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

There will be a Raffle on the day.
