Entries & Race Information


Race day information will be posted on our Facebook page one to two weeks before the race.  Race numbers and timing chips are collected when you register at the Meadows sports centre in Ellon on race day. Please note that no information will be sent out by post.

Runners will be asked to wait in areas designated for their expected race time and will be allowed to start as the early part of the course is cleared of runners.  You may also keep your teams together by moving to a start position that suits the majority of your team members.

It doesn't matter where you start as your own personal race clock starts when you cross the start line.



Swaps are carried out on the ResultsBase website by transferring your entry to another registered user.

Please DON’T allow someone else to use your number if you can’t run. This is a challenging event and it is essential we know exactly who is running on the day.



You can enter as many runners as you like in a team with the first three across the line to count. Please note, though, that you do have to enter as a specific team using the same team name — we won’t count three individual runners with the same club affiliation as a team.


There are prizes for the first, second and third men and women overall. There are also prizes for the first Male and Female Vets (40-49), first Male and Female Supervets (50-59), and first Male and Female Vintage Vets (60+). There are also prizes for the first team, first uniform team and first corporate team, as well as spot prizes.


Please make sure you give us the name and phone number of a race day contact — we do insist on this!



We recommend that all entrants take out personal injury insurance, just as a precaution. Among specialist insurers offering one-day cover are www.sportscoverdirect.com who can give you an online quote.
