Neil McCover Memorial Half Marathon

06 Oct 19

Organiser's Description

This friendly, club organised half marathon is open to runners aged 18 years and over, and will be held on roads in and around Kirkintilloch. The route includes Milton of Campsie, Lennoxtown, and Torrance and Lenzie. The cours is challenging with some undulations but also has recorded some very fast times and allowed many runners to set personal best times.

The event is held on public roads and with the support of Police Scotland and East Dunbartonshrie Council enables the runners to be able to run safely through the scenic countryside and towns of the area.

Please note that runners should aim to complete the course in under 2.5 hours; marshals may be withdrawn after that time.

The race starts a 9am on Sunday 6 October  with registration at Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre close to the town centre. Changing facilities are available from c7.30am.

This year the race incorporates the SVHC half marathon championship race.

The race is being held under UK Athletics rules and is a Scottish Athletics permit event.

 

Entry Fees:

SAL/UKA Registered £13, non-UKA/SAL registered £15 (included £2 SAL levy).

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY and NO REFUNDS AVAILABLE IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RACE.

The event is organised by Kirkintillloch Olympians and is a memorial race for Neil McCover. Neil was a competing athlete, club chair and junior coach at Kirkintilloch Olympians and was tragically killed in a cycling accident on 8 October 2010 whilst cycling with police colleagues.  Neil was a keen long distance runner, competing in marathons, duathlons and triathlons, including the European Ironman Austria amongst his greatest achievements. He was a Superintendent in Strathclyde Police, involved latterly in police training and had been a leading member of the police athletics team. A considerable loss to everyone who had the privilege of knowing him, through this event we hope to pay tribute to Neil's significant contribution to the club and athletics.
