The successful Killearn 10k has been a SELL OUT since the inaugural year in 2013. With great anticipation we sold out again for 2017 and had an absolutely fantastic turnout both in terms of runners and supporters; the Scottish sunshine certainly shone on everyone this year too.
New main sponsor for 2017: The Old Mill Killearn – Many thanks for supporting our event and providing much welcomed appreciation to our runners and marshals both on the day and at the after party!!
The Killearn 10k is Scottish Athletics affiliated and facilitated by members of jogscotland Killearn and the local community. It is classified as a trail run, but is multi-terrain with tarmac, forest path, farm track and open grassland. It is open to entrants aged 16 and over and welcomes first timers and racing legends. Limit set to 250 participants.
Final registration takes place at Killearn Primary School – from where entrants are be piped up to the mighty Buchanan Monument for final race briefing. The race then starts at 11am from the War Memorial. Keeping to the same beautiful route which the Killearn 10k is renowned for, the trail heads out through the village onto the historic pipe track, following along the foothills of Dumgoyne, returning back via Ibert Road. The finish line remains, as always, at Killearn Park where medals and goodie bags are awarded to all finishers.
The routes and paths around the village of Killearn offer a fantastic opportunity for runners and walkers to enjoy our countryside away from the main roads. Each year the Killearn 10k have donated funds to The Paths Group, to support development of signage for one particular project along the banks of the Endrick River. The Paths Group is a local charity which aims to improve access to the countryside of our area for all users – www.kcfc.co.uk/paths. Whilst the Killearn 10k is a non-profit making event, our ongoing capacity entry inevitably raised additional funds which afforded us the opportunity to donate to this local cause.
