Kyles 10 Miles Run/Walk

09 Sep 17

 

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! Early birds! Sign up to the walk or run before 1st February 2017 and you'll be entered into a prize draw to win £100 in vouchers to spend on Argyll's Secret Coast. 

2017 will be our 8th year and the run is now Scottish Athletics Affiliated (the walk is just for fun). We are delighted once again to be sponsored by The Forrest Group

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. 

Registration will take place at the Kames Hall between 10am-11.40am where you can collect your race number which has the chip. There are ample toilets and changing facilities. 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.
