Perth 10k Festival

01 Sep 2019

Organiser's Description

The Perth 10k, 1.5km and 3km Fun Runs offer a great challenge along scenic routes on the banks of the River Tay. The 10k race is well known for being flat and fast and so a great place to get a PB. 

Both the 10k and Fun Runs support inclusiveness and aim to encourage those new to running to come and give them a go. Our ethos is "first or last, it's the same finish line". While there is a competitive edge to both races, we would like to encourage everyone to come and take part and support all runners from those doing their first event to those who have been running all their lives.

We believe every running journey must start somewhere so why not start it at the Perth 10k or one of the Fun Runs for children

The race will start and finish on the North Inch in Perth

Perth 10km COURSE

The race goes anti clockwise around the North Inch before following the riverside pathways towards the A9. At the railway bridge turn left long the path running parallel with the railway line towards Arran road and Muirton Industrial Estate. Once on Arran road keep left on the path until the junction with Arran Road and Bute Drive. Turn left and head along Bute Drive to Riverside Church and then left towards the football pitches and rejoin the riverside path before heading back to the North Inch, retracing the path you came out on, and on to the finish line
