Newmachar 10k 2018

Information and registration

8 September 2018


2018 sees the return of the Newmachar 10km race – a closed road event which takes in some of the back roads of Newmachar and Disblair with several hills to enjoy.

Once again, we would not have managed to stage this race without the support of many local businesses who have sponsored the event. All monies raised from the 2018 10km race will be supporting the Newmachar Axis Community Centre, Newmachar United Football Club and Charlie House.

The route itself will start off in the field next to Charlie Gordon Football park where approx. 100m shall be run on grass. Once onto the road we will take a left turn and head out towards Disblair Road. After climbing Disblair Road we will continue down past Lairshill Kennels until we come to the T-junction where a right turn shall be taken by the runners. They will continue onto the junction at Middleton Farm where a right turn shall be taken and an ascent up Straloch Hill shall be taken following the route back onto Disblair Road where the route will re-join at Disblair Hill before coming back to the start finish area.

The entire route shall be signposted and marshalled at all property junctions and closed road junctions. The road will reopen after the last runner has passed at the relevant stages.

In 2018 we will be opening the kids race to all with the same category of runners as previous years based on age. The entries for this race will be handled online here with an entry fee of £5 per child.

  • Category 1 – 4, 5 & 6 years old
  • Category 2 – 7, 8 & 9 years old
  • Category 3 – 10, 11 & 12 years old

Categories shall be based on the age of kids as of September 8th, 2018.

NOTE: If you are entering children into the event then the person entering them (ie the person creating the profile and the order) MUST be an adult.
