The successful Killearn 10k was a SELL OUT for the inaugural year in 2013 and, with great anticipation, it returns again in 2014, to co-incide with The Killearn Hoolie Gala Week. The Killearn 10k is Scottish Athletics affiliated and facilitated by members of jogscotland Killearn and the local community. It is classified as a trail run, but is multi-terrain with tarmac, forest path, farm track and open grassland. It is open to entrants aged 16 and over with a limit set of 200 participants.
Final registration on the day will take place at The Killearn Hotel (formally The Black Bull) where entrants will then be piped out to the start line, from the Buchanan Monument to the War Memorial. Keeping to the same beautiful route which the Killearn 10k is renowned for, the trail will head out through the village onto the historic pipe track, following along the foothills of Dumgoyne, returning back via Ibert Road.
The finish line will be in Killearn Park where medals, souvenir water bottles and goody bags will be awarded to all finishers. Refreshments will be available back at The Killearn Hotel and prize giving will be at 12.30pm.
The routes and paths around the village of Killearn offer a fantastic opportunity for runners and walkers to enjoy our countryside away from the main roads. In 2013, the Killearn 10k donated funds to The Paths Group, to support development of signage for one particular project along the banks of the Endrick River. The Paths Group is a local charity which aims to improve access to the countryside of our area for all users - www.kcfc.co.uk/paths. Whilst the Killearn 10k is a non-profit making event, 2013’s capacity entry inevitably raised additional funds which afforded us the opportunity to donate to this local cause. The Killearn 10k hopes to continue to offer support to The Paths Group for years to come.
So what are you waiting for - get training!
