Dumfries Running Club One Hour Track Race

22 Jun 2024

Organiser's Description

Dumfries Running Club invites runners to participate in a One Hour Track Race

This will take place at;

The David Keswick Athletics Centre, Marchmount, Dumfries, DG1 1PX

To cater for as wide a range of racers as possible - from people trying a time trial for the first time to masters athletes with their sights on age-related best performance times - we will be holding two separate races. 

Race 1; Novice, 10:00 - 11:00 hrs

Enter this race if you are a first-timer running distance on the track, particularly if you are not targeting an age-related UK best performance 

The minimum age for entrants on the day of the race is 17.

Race 2; Masters, 11:30 - 12:30 hrs

Hosted for masters athletes, this event targets runners seeking UK 'best performances' times as found on the BMAF website 

A race lap counter will record all laps completed and additional distance covered. 

Please note that for a best performance to be accepted, a record of lap times will be required from a second recorder appointed by the athlete. Two competing athletes can have the same recorder. The two sheets - one from the race lap counter and the other from your own recorder - are required to update UK Best Performances. 

The race

Both races will start by whistle. A 'one minute to go' announcement will be made at the 59-minute mark by ringing a bell. 

Runners must stop promptly and wait for the measuring wheel to reach you or for a race assistant to mark your finishing position.

Photography or video may be used as backup recording of the race finish. 

Leaving the track during the race

If an athlete needs to leave the track during the race for any reason and then return, a designated position will be marked for leaving and re-entering the track.


A digital clock will display the time at the start position throughout the race. 

The venue

The David Keswick Athletics Centre has ample parking spaces and is a 15-minute walk from Dumfries railway station. Changing rooms, toilets and shower facilities are all available. 

First Aid cover will be provided. 

This event is pending a licence via Scottish Athletics. Licence number 13378 refers.
