welcome back to
The KILLEARN 10K TRAIL RACE
11am – Saturday 4th June – 2016
Entries open via entrycentral – 8pm Thursday 3rd December 2015
The successful Killearn 10k has been a SELL OUT since the inaugural year in 2013. With great anticipation we return for 2016, bringing developments and improvements to ensure this is a priority event on your race calendar. 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 on the day will take place at Killearn Primary School – from where entrants will be piped out the 2 minute stroll to the start line at the War Memorial in the shadow of the mighty Buchanan Monument. Keeping to the same beautiful route which the Killearn 10k is renowned for, the trail will head out through the village onto the historic pipe track, following along the foothills of Dumgoyne, returning back via Ibert Road.
The finish line will be in Killearn Park where medals and race vests / t-shirts will be awarded to all finishers. Prize giving will be in the park approx 12.30pm.
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. The Killearn 10k hopes to continue to offer support to The Paths Group for years to come.
So what are you waiting for – get training!
