Middleton Trust Road Races 2016
Sunday 11 September
Victoria Hall, Station Road, Ellon
The uniquely popular Ellon 3K and 10K road races are organised by the Middleton Trust. The 3K is a fun family event that promotes good health and sportsmanship. It is open to individuals of any size, shape, age and ability looking to run a fast and flat course for fun. The 10K attracts runners from all over Scotland and continues to provide fierce competition for the 12 cash prizes on offer.
The 10K road race is held under UK Athletics rules under Scottish Athletics Permit no 293.
Team prizes feature in both the 3K and 10K road races and the online entry system allows you to collect all your team members together and enter them with a single order. If you use multiple orders please ensure that you all use the same team name on each so we can correctly identify the teams. (A team is an informal collection of individuals and is not the same as your UKA affiliated running club.)
10K: £16 for UKA members, £18 for non-UKA runners. All participants must be aged 15 or over on 31 August 2016.
