Organiser's Description


Now in its FIFTH YEAR, this event is being held to raise funds to support Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Trust, Gateside, Ayrshire. It is run over a flat, fast course with every opportuntiy to set a PB time.

At least £12 of each entry fee will be donated to Hessilhead and so far we have managed with the support of entrants to raise over £1000pa.

Location: the race over a distance of 10k (not measured) will be held on quiet paths along the side of Castle Semple Loch and on the cycle path towards Kilbarchan. The surface is a mixture of tarmac and hardcore and is almost entirely flat.

Registration: is from 6.15pm outside the Visitor Centre at Castle Semple with the race start a few metres away on the adjacent cycle path. The race is restricted to 175 runners. The race starts at 7.15pm.

Entry Fees: SAL/UKA Registered £14, Others £16 (including £2 levy to Scottish Athletics). The race is open to runners aged 16 years or older.

Water: this year we are seeking to reduce our use of plastic. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE. Water will be available to fill your bottle at the start and finish. There will be no water station on the course.

Race limited to 175 runners.

Prizes: There are no formal prizes, but spot prizes may be offered.
