Kaim Hill Race
19 Apr 2023
This is the first race in the Scottish Hill Runners Bog and Burn series and is sponsored by North Ayrshire Athletics Club [NAAC]
Race registration will be at Fairlie Parish Church, KA29 0AL and is approx a 7 minute walk to the start.
Race briefing at 6:50pm at start line and will be run under SHR rules which means waterproof full body cover, hat, gloves and a whistle.
The race starts at 7pm with a short section of tarmac before heading up the Fairlie Glen, a scenic narrow winding trail with lots of tree roots and uneven path underfoot to keep you alert. After reaching the kissing gate at the top of the glen there's a tricky burn crossing to contend with, before a climb up a steep muddy bank gains you access to the open hillside covered with rough heather and grassy tussocks. The route then follows a quad bike track towards the summit plateau in an anti-clockwise direction to the cairn. At the turn the descent takes you through a bog and back down the same route to the welcoming finishing line. Caution required on the descent through the glen due to the many tree roots and protruding rocks.
Prizegiving, a hot drink [if you can bring your own cup that would be great] and cake will be provided back at the Fairlie Parish Church. Please ensure you remove any dirty footwear before entering the church hall.
