Once you’ve entered you will receive a confirmation email including reminder details on the event.
Entry to this race is on a first come, first served basis. We are not operating a waiting list. If once you enter you are unable to run and wish to nominate a substitute, you will be able to make this change yourself before the closing date on Friday 15th December at no extra charge.
There will be no refunds given once you enter, so please don’t take a place if you’re unsure about running on the day. If the race is unable to go ahead due to unforeseen circumstances or adverse course conditions which would impact on the safety of competitors, we will post notice of this on the PH Racing Club website the day before and send all entrants a status email. The race will then be rescheduled for early 2024 and all entrants will be automatically assigned a new place.
The Devonvale Hall will be open from 8.15am to collect your combined race number and timing chip, for toilets, changing, and leaving your bags. Post race we'll have soup and hot drinks, as well as the prize giving.
The start line is on Devon Way immediately adjacent to the hall.
A pre-race briefing will take place at 9.55am.
The race starts at 10.00am.
The course, for the most part, follows the Devon Way from Tillicoultry to Dollar and back, with a 1km loop in Dollar itself.
Apart from a wee section of gravel at the far end, the route is tarred wide pathway, and for all intents and purposes is flat, sheltered and traffic free and ideal if you're aiming for a personal best time. We’ve had Scottish Athletics accurately measure out 10km, and your result will therefore be valid toward national ranking statistics.
Don’t let the speed freaks put you off though, the event is open to all, and if pace is not your thing, then you’ve got the lovely Devon River valley to enjoy, as well as views of the Ochil hills.
A drink station will be provided at 4.5km where you begin the loop. You’ll get a second chance to take a swig when you pass this station again at 5.5km in the opposite direction.
To ensure the safety of competitors, the route will be marshalled at key points throughout, and we’ll be operating a lead bicycle and a last runner sweeper. Please follow any instructions marshals give. We'll also have trained first aiders out on the course in case of need and also at the hall.
Please note also that the Devon Way is a popular walking path and we will not have exclusive use of it for the race. Therefore, please be aware of other users, especially those with dogs, and remain courteous as this is a right of way. We will post advance notice of the race for path users to try and lessen any obstruction on race day. As it is an out and back course you must run on the left hand side of the path to avoid other competitors.
The finish line will be on Elistoun Drive, next to where you started. Please ensure you keep the finish line area clear to allow for mad sprints in.
On finishing, all competitors will receive a super duper medal to go with the goody bag you'll get at registration.
All being well with our timing folk you should be able to get a chit with your finish time shortly after you cross the line. Full results will also be on the PH Racing Club website later on.
PH Racing Club look forward to receiving your entry and seeing you on the day.
