Roon The Toon 10K

22 Aug 2021

Organiser's Description

Roon The Toon 10K

Coronavirus:  Following the First Minister's recent announcement of the planned end of Covid restrictions on August 9th, we have now commenced preparations for the event to go ahead.

We could of course be subject to changes in circumstances (because the race attracts a large number of entrants and is run on closed public roads within a  fixed 2 hour window, it can only take place with no restrictions) but we are confident enough to take that chance.  If 22nd August does not suit, entrants can opt for a full refund or to have their entry carried forward to next year.   This offer is open until 30th July when the process for sending out numbers and chips commences. We apologise for the inconvenience and uncertainty.

 

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

 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 event for insurance puposes) and will be at the back of the main field, but it is the same in all other respects as the main race. 

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

Fantastic goody bag with a value well in excess of the entry fee , T Shirt and medal for all finishers,plus a comprehensive prize fund. NB : Prizes are based on gun time. NB: for 'Stroller Roll' competitors, it is one medal/goody bag per entry.

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.

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