Organiser's Description

Roon the Watter 10km 
& Fun Run

Roon the Watter (“Round the Water”) is an officially measured 10km road race part of the Gatehouse Gala week.  The race is on the evening of Tuesday 30th July 2019.  Starting from the Gatehouse of Fleet Community Centre, runners first go through the Gatehouse of Fleet with supporting crowds cheering you on.  Proceeding in an anticlockwise direction, the route turns left at the top of the town, staying left at each road junction crossing the Water of Fleet, up a short sharp hill past the castle, before a long 2-3 mile gentle down hill back into Gatehouse of Fleet.  The circular route follows much of the Water of Fleet river (hence “Roon the Watter”) both upstream and down.

The main event registration is from 17:45 to 18:45 before starting at 19:00pm.  A Fun Run, targeted for those 14 and under starts at 18:30 with registration also closing 15 minutes before the start of the race.  The race starts from the Gatehouse Community Centre.  The online entry Fee is £2.75 for the Fun Run and £8 Online Price for the 10km event (less with the early bird offer).  On-The-Day entry fees increase to £3/junior fun run and £10 for the Roon the Watter 10km.

Please note that the event has a combined entry limit of 300 runners.  Entries are available on the day, only until the entry limit is reached.  The last few years have nearly exceeded this limit.  Please enter early to avoid disappointment.

All runners will receive a memento of the day with prizes as follows:


There is plenty of parking within the village of Gatehouse, although note that parking at the Community Center is reserved for marshalls, stalls and the finish area.  The Community Center has toilets and is the race HQ where race numbers are collected, late entries and presentations held.  Please note, there are no showers available on site.

The event will have one water stop around the 5km mark with further water supplied at the end of the race.

After the event, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs in the village where we would encourage you to stay and enjoy the scenic area.
