Saturday 9th September 2017
2017 sees the inaugural Newmachar 10km races – a closed road event which takes in some of the back roads of Newmachar & Disblair with several hills to enjoy.
ENTRIES OPEN ON THURSDAY 6th OF APRIL 2017
ENTRIES WILL CLOSE ON THE 31st OF JULY 2017
THERE WILL BE NO ENTRIES AFTER THIS DATE AND NO ENTRIES ON RACE DAY
We would not have managed to stage this race without the support of many local businesses who have sponsored the event. All monies raised from the 10km race are for the going towards the running of the local community Axis Centre.
The route itself will start off in the field next to Charlie Gordon Football park where approx. 100m will be run on grass. Once onto the road the route will take a left turn and head out towards Disblair Road. After climbing Disblair Road the route continues down past Lairshill Kennels until it comes to the T-junction where the runners make a right turn. The route continues on to the junction at Middleton Farm where it takes a right turn followed by an ascent up Straloch Hill following the route back onto Disblair Road where the route will re-join at Disblair Hill before returning to the start/finish area.
The entire route shall be signposted and marshalled at all property junctions and closed road junctions. The road will reopen after the last runner has passed the relevant stages.
In addition to the main 10km race, there is also a kids race which will be open for pupils of Newmachar Primary school only,. The registration for this race will be handled through the school only, with 3 categories of running: Category 1 – Nursery to P2; Category 2 – P3 to P5 and Category 3 – P6 & P7.
£18.00 plus booking fee of £0.75
(A small fee of 1.25% will be added to the final price to cover card transaction fees)
