12 hour Mormond Hill Fundraiser for Kayleigh's Wee Stars and Hamish Dear's Warm Hugs
14 Sep 19
The first ever '12 hour Mormond Hill Run' takes place this year - in aid of Hamish Dear's Warm Hugs and Kayleigh's Wee Stars.
It will be held on Saturday 14th September starting at 06:00am.
Please note that this is not a race. It is a fundraiser run only!
It's a simple concept - run from Ritchie Hall, Strichen, up Hospital Brae, up the quarry road to Hunter's Lodge, then down the other side and up to the gate just before the satellites (4 miles out) then turn and run back (4 miles back). A total of 8 miles and over 1,000ft of ascent. Then repeat as many times as possible within 12 hours.
The route will be marked and marshalled but keep an eye on facebook.com/explorerunning for details of a guided run on the route beforehand.
Your £10 entry fee (+50p which goes to Entry Central) will be used to pay the expenses for the event (hire of Ritchie Hall facilities) and any surplus will go to the charities. We would ask that you promote the justgiving page (details to follow) so that we can all try to raise as much money as possible for these wonderful charities!
The run starts from the Ritchie Hall playing field and the route takes in stunning views of the buchan countryside.
When at the summit you can see from the 'Sea to Bennachie'.
Start time will be 06:00am, and a run briefing will take place prior to the start.
Entries are £10. Online entry only.
Over 18s runners only.
Aid station. There will be 1 aid station situated at Ritchie Hall with a variety of food/drinks (provided by volunteers). If you have any specific fuelling requirements, please take your own.
Parking. Parking is available at the Ritchie Hall free of charge, but if possible car sharing is advised to minimise congestion.
There will be marshals at various points throughout the course. Please treat them with respect and follow ALL marshal instructions carefully. They are in place primarily for your safety.
Toilets, showers and changing facilities are available at the start/finish.
