Neilston Pad Race

Organiser's Description

Neilston Padrace

Saturday 6th May 2023 - Race Start 10:00 am

The 4.5 mile event has a little bit of everything: road, path, trail, and of course a splattering of mud. The event starts from the Neilston Show field in Scotland's 6th highest village, and circles the iconic Neilston Pad. 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! We plan to use the usual route, though this may be changed if forestry work is being carried out. 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.

Starting point: Neilston Show Field, Uplawmoor Road, Neilston G78 3LE

Registration: 08:45 am to 09:45 pm at the Padrace Tent on the Show Field. (Registration will close promptly at 09:45 pm). The compulsory pre-race briefing takes place at 09:50 am outside the Padrace Tent.

Online entry closes at midnight Thursday 4th May 2023. On the day entry will be £12, -  £6 to enter Show Field and £6 race entry (cash only for race entry).

No refunds will be given unless the race is cancelled.
