Kyles 10 Miles Run/Walk
14 Sep 2019
Ten years, ten miles! 2019 will be our 10th anniverary year. We'll have some extra celebrations planned, including special prizes for anyone who has run all ten Kyles 10 Miles - could that be you?
The Kyles 10 Miles is an unrivalled scenic road race/walk on Argyll's Secret Coast. The circular route heads out from the village of Tighnabruaich around the beautiful Ardlamont penninsula with stunning views of the Mull of Kintyre and Arran. The first five miles are hilly and challenging, flattening out for the second half of the run which takes you along the coastal road to Kames. We sold out last year so book early to avoid disappointment!
The run is Scottish Athletics Affiliated (the walk is just for fun). We are delighted to be sponsored by Radisson RED Glasgow.
This year we again have chip timing and race commentary. We've also upgraded the goody bags, and there are medals, wicking t-shirts and some other treats for you. There will also be gift vouchers for the run winners.
Your race number will be posted to you before the race. You do not need to register on the day. However the registration desk will be open at the Kames Hall between 10am-11.40am if you have any questions, and there are ample toilets and changing facilities here. This year there will again be a producers market in the hall with local crafts and home baking to tempt you. The run will start on the main road in front of the Royal An Lochan at 12 noon - a ten-minute walk from the hall (the walk starts at 11am from the hall), and finishes in front of the Kames Hotel where there will be a BBQ.
Please note there are very limited toilets at the start - use the registration hall if possible.
Walkers 11.00 am, in front of registration hall.
Runners 12.00 noon, in front of the Royal An Lochan - 10 minutes from registration (limited toilets).
