10k Road Race

 

The race has been an annual event, in some form, for over since the 1950s and a record-breaking 225 runners registered for this year’s event.  Serious competitors and fun-runners alike have enjoyed this well-organised; clearly marked; safe and marshalled road race.

… and for those thinking about competing in a 10k run for the very first time, the Isle of Bute has to be the perfect choice for your inaugural race.  With that in mind we are sure you will find our Beginners’ Programme provides all the incentive needed to help with your pre-race training.

 

Each competitor will finish with a goodie bag and be provided with refreshments. Furthermore, as a consequence of attracting valued sponsorship for the 10k road race, last year we introduced a chip-to-chip timing system enabling each competitor to retrieve their official time immediately upon completion of the race.  This process proved very successful and was well received by the competitors, so much so we intend to retain it for the foreseeable future.

All in all a truly fun experience for everyone to enjoy!
