Organiser's Description

Neil McCover Memorial Half Marathon - Sunday 9 October 2022

We are delighted to be able to hold the 11th running of this popular, scenic and friendly half marathon race. Organsied by Kirkintilloch Olympians with the support of Police Scotland and East Dunbartonshire Council, it will take you through some of the scenic countryside and towns of East Dunbartonshire. The course is held on public roads and pavements and is undulating, but has recorded some very fast times and allowed many runners to set personal best times.

This year the race is also hosting the West District half marathon championship, and all runners from affiliated clubs in the West District are eligible for this competition. Please ensure that you include your SA number and club name in your entry. 

All runners will receive a special commemorative t-shirt.

The race starts at 9am on Sunday 9 October,

It is planned that registration will be held at Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre close to the town centre, with changing facilities available from c7.30am.

Please note that runners should aim to complete the course in under 2.5 hours; marshals may be withdrawn after that time.

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

Entry Fees to Half Marathon:

SAL/UKA Registered £15, non-UKA/SAL registered £17 (includes £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 who 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.
