Organiser's Description

Rattray Blair Half Marathon and 10K Races

Sunday 2nd June 2024

Scottish Athletics license pending

We are delighted to announce that this fantastic running event will go ahead again in 2024! The Rattray Blair Half Marathon is one of the most undulating and scenic half marathon races in Scotland and this year we’ve decided to incorporate an equally undulating and scenic 10K race too!

All profits from both races will be split between two charities – the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) and the Alexis Rose Fund in aid of Meningitis Now.

The Races

Both the Half Marathon and the 10K courses start and finish near Rattray Primary School. The courses have been accurately measured (Certificates of Course Accuracy issued by the Association of UK Course Measurers) and are predominantly on quiet, rural roads with the Half Marathon having a small section of rough track towards the end.


Please note that entries close at midnight on 25th May 2024. Entry for the Half Marathon is £27 and entry for the 10K is £22. Note that there is a discount of £2 for entrants affiliated to Scottish Athletics.

All finishers will receive a quality T-shirt, a bespoke medal and a fabulous goody bag.

Sorry, no entries on the day, no number transfers, no refunds and no deferrals.


Parking will be available at Rattray Primary School, High Street, Rattray, PH10 7DG.


Registration for both events will open at 8.00am at the Community Connect Centre beside Rattray Primary School. Runners will receive their race number at registration. All entrants must register at least 15 minutes before the event starts to allow time to get to the start line.


The start and finish is in the vicinity of the Community Connect Centre beside Rattray Primary School. Please be at the start area in good time.

The Half Marathon will start at 9.15am.

The 10K will start at 10am.

Time Limit

Half Marathon participants must be able to complete the course in 3 hours 15 minutes or less.


10K participants must be able to complete the course in 1 hour 45 minutes or less.


You are welcome to continue to complete the course after the cut-off time but please be aware that marshals etc may have departed the course and you will not receive an official time.


PLEASE NOTE: UKA Rule 240 S5 forbids the wearing of headphones, for this reason we ask runners not to wear headphones unless medically prescribed. Headphones that work by conducting sound through bones and do not sit in the ears are acceptable.

We cannot allow participants to take part with dogs, prams, push-chairs etc due to the nature of the route.

Water Stations

There will be 4 water stations on the Half Marathon course and 1 water station on the 10K course.

Participants must keep to the left hand side of the road unless otherwise directed. All participants must wear their race number on the front of their clothing. Please use four safety pins (spare pins available at registration) to assist in identification at the finish line.

First aid cover will be available.

Post Race Refreshments

The most amazing post race buffet will be available for all participants. Probably the best in Perthshire, maybe even Scotland…..
