Event summary

The race where some of our national and International runners started! The race is completely contained on tarmac roads in the estate and passes right in front of Balmoral Castle! Well marshalled and signed throughout with a lead cyclist and sweep runner. The race starts and finishes at the main finish gantry. The start is operated by age bands – the oldest at the front, the youngest at the back. Participants will be called to the assembly area prior to the warm up. Placards will be clearly displayed, e.g. Primary 4 and you should line up behind the placard indicating the school year that you are in.

How to enter

What's included:

This year we are excited to be providing every finisher with the first in a unique series of five medals to be presented between now and 2023, each featuring an iconic landmark within and around the Balmoral estate. The 2019 medal will showcase Lochnagar while in subsequent years we will include the Auld Brig o’Dee, Balmoral Castle, Crathie Kirk and Albert’s Cairn. I am sure these will become collectible items and runners will want to acquire a complete set

CAR PARKING: Car parks for competitors and spectators are located within the Estate and in Crathie adjacent to the A93. Participants and spectators will be free to come and go from the
event whenever they wish. Delays may be experienced when exiting from car parks within the Castle Grounds when races are in progress. If possible, please share your transport with your fellow runners and family to reduce the number of vehicles on the day. Allow plenty of journey time, there is only one main road (A93) leading to Balmoral and delays are inevitable. Please be patient. Aim to get to the start and finish line for at least one hour before the advertised start times of your event. There will be plenty to see and do, so make a day of it and get there early. In addition to our normal parking arrangements car park 6 will be used for early leavers and castle visitors.

DESIGNATED CAR PARKS: All public car parking for traffic approaching from both Ballater & Braemar is located at Balmoral. For early traffic arriving at the event, parking will be available
within the estate grounds. Once the car parks are full within the estate itself the parking will revert to the designated parking outside the estate in the fields adjacent to the Visitor Centre near Crathie Church. Please follow the directional signage, instructions and advice given to you by police and stewards on the day. Parking is on grass. Please only park in the designated event car parks and do not park on grass verges. Once you have parked, signs will direct you towards the start & finish areas (25 minute walk approx) or you could take one of our buses operating between the main gate and the Estate office from 9.30am - except when there are races on.
