Middleton Trust Road Races 2017
Sunday 1st October
Victoria Hall, Station Road, Ellon
The uniquely popular Ellon road races are organised by the Middleton Trust. The 3K is a fun family event that promotes good health and sportsmanship. It is open to individuals of any size, shape, age and ability looking to run a fast and flat course for fun. The 10K attracts runners from all over Scotland and continues to provide fierce competition for the 12 cash prizes on offer.
The 10K road race is held under UK Athletics rules under Scottish Athletics Permit no 3275.
Team prizes feature in both the 3K and 10K road races and the online entry system allows you to colleate all your team members together and enter them with a single order. If you use multiple orders please ensure that you all use the same team name on each so we can correctly identify the teams. (A team is an informal collection of individuals and is not the same as your UKA affiliated running club.
New for 2017
The Middleton Trust have for 2017 introduced a 5k Road Race to compliment the 3k and the 10k giving runners the opportunity to enter into a different distance within the event.
The Trust is also bringing back something we haven’t done for a number of years. We are asking all runners (if possible) to attract sponsorship for whichever race they enter and that sponsorship money will go towards local charity Kayleigh’s Wee Stars.
The races will start at the times shown.
