The committee is pleased to announce the third Newmachar 10k will be held on Saturday the 14th of September. Our primary school aged races shall continue again with Category 1 – 4 to 6 years old, Category 2 – 7 to 9 years old and Category 3 – 10 to 12 years old.
The support of local businesses through sponsorship and community events through fundraising allows us to host this event. All monies raised from the 2019 events will be supporting Newmachar Axis Community Centre, Newmachar United Football Club and Kayleigh’s Wee Stars.
The 10km route remains unchanged from previous years, starting and finishing in the field next to Charlie Gordon Football park. The 10k shall have a front cyclist guiding the runners around the marshalled course with a tail runner sweeping the event to ensure all runners safety during the event. Entry fee shall be £20 per entrant.
