Route description
Route description

It's a short distance race - approx. one mile, but there is a twist. Participants are expected to carry a bag of potatoes while running!

Men are asked to haul a 20kg bag (just over three stones in old money) and women 10kg at the 'Great Perthshire Tattie Run.' There are relay options (4 x 400 metres approx.) and anyone considering that option will face serious opposition from teams of army cadets, pub teams, gym members, shop staff, farmers and rugby teams.

Individuals

Start outside City Hall (opposite St. John's Shopping Centre) next to stage in King Edward Street, turn right into St. John's Place and head past St. John's Kirk, turn right into St. John's Street behind the church, turning right again into St. John's Place on the other side of the church heading back up towards King Edward Street past the stage.

This circuit will be repeated in a loop four times before crossing the finish line.

Teams

Start outside City Hall (opposite St. John's Shopping Centre) next to stage in King Edward Street, turn right into St. John's Place and head past St. John's Kirk, turn right into St. John's Street behind the church, turning right again into St. John's Place on the other side of the church heading back up towards King Edward Street past the stage.

Each team member must complete one circuit only before handing over to each team member at the stage area. The final team member will cross the actual finish line.

Juniors

Start outside City Hall (opposite St. John's Shopping Centre) next to stage in King Edward Street, turn right into St. John's Place and turn right into Fleshers' Vennel at the front of St. John's Kirk, turn right into St. John's Place heading back up towards King Edward Street past the stage, before crossing the finish line with their small bag of tatties (aprox. 2.5kg) in tact. (length of each run is dependant on age group!)

Spud 'n' Spoon Races

Start outside City Hall (opposite St. John's Shopping Centre) next to stage in King Edward Street, heading straight up towards almost the High Street then turning back towards the stage area in King Edward Street. This is a fun activity with races for toddlers, children and adults.
