Join Perth Road Runners for the 9th running of the Tay Ten!
This is a Scottish Athletics licensed event.
RACE DISTANCE & DESCRIPTION
The course is an accurately measured and SA certified 10 miles on “B” class roads and riverside track. It is a flat (fast) course, perfect for a PB, with a stadium start and finish. The vast majority of the route is on tarmac, with a small section on trail. The route will be clearly marked and marshalled.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to safety concerns for participants on the course, the route has now been slightly changed for the 2024 event. Please see http://www.perthroadrunners.co.uk/tay-ten/ for further detail on the course.
Entrance fee for the event will be dependent on your medal selection, or lack thereof, at check out. Perth Road Runners care about the environmental footprint of our events; this year, we are offering participants the option to choose whether they wish to receive a sustainable, 100% biodegradable wildflower seed medal for an additional £3 on the entry fee.
Those wishing to receive a medal must have completed their sign up before 10th March. Any sign-ups after this date will automatically be set to the lower entrance fee with no medal.
More information on the medals on offer can be found here: https://www.earthruns.com/our-medals/
Bespoke eco-friendly medal at finish line - £17.00 (S.A. members £15.00)
No medal at finish line - £14.00 (S.A. members £12.00)
All entrants must be 17 years or over.
Strictly no entries on the day and no deferrals.
Transfers and refunds will be accepted up until 10th April - there will be NO REFUND and NO TRANSFERS on medals if you paid for one upon entry.
Strictly limited to 350 runners – so get in quick! Once full, entrants may sign up to a limited waiting list and will be contacted if a space becomes available.
Race start time: 11am on Sunday 28th April 2024.
Registration will be in person from 09:30-10:30. Registration will be held within Perth Grammar School Games Hall. You will receive a number that must be worn clearly (not obscured by straps/jackets/reduced in size) on your front to ensure accurate timing.
Any entrant found to have transferred numbers - or be wearing a transferred number - after registration will be disqualified and may be banned from future events. Number switching invalidates results and age category positions and can have serious implications if a runner becomes unwell during the event.
Race start location:
The race starts and finishes at the George Duncan Athletics Track at Perth Grammar School, Gowans Terrace, Perth, PH1 5AZ.
Parking will be available at Perth Grammar School, Bute Drive, Muirton, Perth, PH1 5AZ.
If dedicated car parks are full, there is free street parking nearby, however please ensure you park considerately as it is a residential area. A map of allowed and prohibited parking locations will be sent to entrants before the race.
There are toilet facilities available at both the George Duncan Athletics Track and Perth Grammar School hall.
Changing Rooms and Showers:
There will be limited changing facilities available at the track, however these are not very large so please arrive ready to run if possible. There will be no access to showers.
It is anticipated that food and hot drinks will be available from a local catering company at the end of the race for participants and spectators.
Further information about the event, including course details and car parking options, can be found on the Perth Road Runners website: http://www.perthroadrunners.co.uk/tay-ten/.
DOGS - PLEASE NOTE: No dogs - except guide dogs - will be allowed in the track, hall or in the main car park. If it is necessary they come with you, you may park in the car park available off of Gowans Avenue, however dogs will need to remain in the car and be walked out with the event area, including the main car park. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience this may cause; these restrictions are imposed upon us by facility owners.
HEADPHONES - PLEASE NOTE: The wearing of headphones or earphones is not permitted in any of the races under Scottish and UK Athletics rules. We will only permit the use of headhpone or earphones that use bone conduction technology, which allow the wearer to be aware of their surroundings. However, this is at your own risk and if an incident occurs as a result of, or made worse by, the wearing of these headphones or earphones you may be held liable.
There is 1 water station on the route which runners will pass twice – firstly between the 4 and 5 mile markers and then again between the 7 and 8 mile markers.
Results will be published on our Tay Ten Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/taytenprr and the Perth Road Runners website (http://www.perthroadrunners.co.uk/) shortly afterwards.
