Extra places will be snapped up for 2021 Half Dram

Return of top Dundee race boosted as 200 more places are made available

Organisers of the Half Dram have released a further 200 places for the 2021 staging of their event on 8 August. One of Scotland's most popular half marathons, the Half Dram had posted 'full house' notices last week on a 500-place run.

Easing of COVID restrictions in Scotland yesterday (19 July) have allowed additional places to be made available at this late stage.

A scenic multi-terrain route following the northern half of Dundee's Green Circular from Camperdown Park to the Esplanade at Broughty Ferry is the key feature of the event; now Tayside and Angus runners will be scrambling for the coveted extra places.

Strict COVID safety measures will be in place for the event including the requirement for home testing using a lateral flow kit, wave starts, the supply of race numbers pre-event, mask-wearing where appropriate and quick post-race dispersal. Eventfull Management will also be staging the Half Braemarathon at the picturesque Aberdeenshire village with Royal associations on 5 September and are hopeful that the return of these events will signal significant progress towards something close to race normality and a future where the Scottish running community is able to participate in the full range of traditional events.

Eventfull’s Nicholas Kydd told runABC Scotland: “It's great to be able to organise these events again, after a 2 year hiatus. People need things to look forward to and focus on and we hope these runs can play a part in that process."

Entries for the Half Dram are available at the event website.
