Organiser's Description

Roon The Toon 10K

** Hi this event is now closed and as we are already oversubscribed for the limit agreed with the local authority we won't be managing a waitlist. Like this year, Roon the Toon 2023 opents on January 1st. Thank you for your interest **

The event starts and finishes at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena in Kilmarnock and features a fast, flat, attractive course that goes "Roon The Toon". Full details of the event are on the race website -

www.roonthetoon.com

This year the event plays host to the Scottish National 10K Road Race and Wheelchair Race Championships.

The Weelchair Race (self propelled) is for experienced racers with appropriate racing chairs and personal protection and starts 2 minutes in front of the main field.

We also have a 'Stroller Roll' for runners wishing to push buggies / wheelchairs. This needs to be a separate non-competitive event for insurance puposes and will be at the back of the main field. NB: 'non competitive' is not precisely defined by our insureres but it is about avoiding risk - if you are likely to become impatient to pass slow runners to the point of rudeness, it is not the event for you. 

Self propelled wheelchair users, not part of the Wheelchair race, start with the main field.

Best value goody bag anywhere with a value well in excess of the entry fee - T Shirt and medal for all finishers, 2 free tickets for a Kilmarnock FC home game (conditions apply), Roon the Toon Empire Biscuit, free pint or glass of Prossecco and a comprehensive prize fund.

NB: for 'Stroller Roll' competitors, it is one medal/goody bag per entry. All prizes are based on gun time.

In addition to male and female team prizes for running clubs, there are also special category prizes for male, female and mixed teams as follows :-

  • First Public Service Team (police, fire, NHS or Local Authority)
  • First Educational Establishment Team (Secondary School, Uni, College -entrants must be 15 or older on race day)
  • First Business Team
  • First Sports Club Team (excluding running or Tri clubs)

A team can be of any size but only the first 3 finishers count based on overall position. Organisations can enter multiple teams. Just choose a name (as long as it’s decent) and select the appropriate team category on the drop down menu. You can make multiple entries on the same credit card by using the 'Add Another' button on the Shopping Basket screen.

Back for this year are the Schools and Sports Club Challenges where there is £2000 in prizes available for East Ayrshire Schools and Sports Council affiliated clubs. These organisations will be emailed entry details.  

Entries will close on June 1st or when the race limit of 1500 is reached.
