Organiser's Description

Neilston Pad Race

Saturday 2nd May 2020 - Race Start 10:00 am

The 4.5 mile event has a little bit of everything: road, path, trail and of course mud. The event starts from the Neilston Show field in Scotland's 6th highest village, and circles the iconic Neilston Pad above the village. This is primarily a trail race featuring a decent climb, with a short linking section on public roads. Runners of all ability are welcome, - it’s a race for some and a run for others! Due to ongoing forestry work, the route may change from previous years, but it will still be enjoyably challenging. Entry to Neilston Show is included so why not make a day of it and enjoy the Show once you pass the finish line?

Basic changing facilities are available for runners and bags can be left in the race tent (though it’s advisable not to leave anything valuable). Parts of the course will be muddy so you are strongly advised to wear off-road shoes.

Entrants for the run must be 16 years of age or over.
