Kyles 10 Miles Open For Entries

Fancy a stunning 10 miler this autumn?

Can we let you in on a secret? Entries have just opened for a 10 mile autumn road race with what organisers call ‘unrivalled’ scenery along Argyll’s ‘Secret Coast’. Interested?

The Kyles 10 Miles is set for 9 September and its circular route will take runners out from the village of Tighnabruaich around the beautiful Ardlamont Peninsula where they will be rewarded with stunning views of the Mull of Kintyre and Arran. The first five miles are hilly and challenging, flattening out for the second half of the run which takes runners along the coastal road to Kames.

Organisers Tighnabruaich District Development Trust call the natural circular course on a secluded coastal route ‘a gem once uncovered never forgotten’. They also urge people to enter early: "After two years of cancellations due to Covid the event in 2022 was enjoyed by many so book early to avoid any disappointment."

Entries to the event are strictly limited to 500 and are expected to sell out, it is a real community affair and those taking part can expect a hearty welcome, a friendly vibe and fantastic hospitality throughout their visit.

Included in the race entry fee is official chip-timing (run only), a unique sports fabric t-shirt and a special commemorative medal. There will be a payable BBQ at the finish line which is organised by The Kames Hotel.

Stuart McGeachy of Campbeltown Running Club won the 2022 staging, in a time of 58:21, while first female home was Cambuslang Harrier Lesley Blackwood who clocked 1:06:36.
