SUNDAY 30th JULY 2017 – 12 NOON
A 10 mile road race through superb countryside around Ballater, Royal Deeside.
Start and finish at Monaltrie Park in Ballater
The Polhollick suspension bridge was damaged in the spate of 30th December 2015 and will probably not be repaired this year. So in 2017 the route will be the same as last year, see map below. There are two sections where the road or track has been damaged; by the road down to the Muick and the track to the Polhollick Footbridge. At these points there will be short paths through the woods.
The event is conducted under UK Athletics Rules and is a Scottish Athletics Permit Event.
Limited changing facilities and no showers. There is also a large orienteering event on in the area, with 3000 orienteers registering, so allow for extra time for parking further away from Monaltrie Park than usual. The usual parking in the school carpark will not be available.
There will be a water stop at the top of the hill by Knock Castle.
Pre entries, pick up number on day.
We aim to hold the prizegiving at 2pm at Monaltrie Park.
