Run Balmoral

Five Days Left To Run Balmoral

Don't miss the sign-up deadline for this iconic Scottish event...

25 years is certainly worth celebrating, and that's exactly what organisers of Run Balmoral intend for this year's staging of the event which will take place on 27/28 April. If you would like to join the party then be quick though - as entries close at the end of the month (31 March) so just 5 days left to secure yourself a spot at one of the event's various races.

Close to 5,000 people of all ages are expected to take part in an exciting series of races held over two days in the beautiful surroundings of the Balmoral Estate. The famous castle provides a spectacular backdrop and all races are held on traffic-free roads and trails, offering stunning views of the Deeside countryside and the Cairngorm mountains.

The race distances on offer include the MPH 1.5K primary schools race, NFU Mutual 2.5K secondary schools race, Harbour Energy 5K, Stena Drilling 10K, Bristow 3 mile trail race and Bristow 15 mile trail race. If you're really up for a challenge then how about the John Clark Motor Group Devil of Deeside Challenge which will see you take part in the 5K, 10K, duathlon and 15 mile races.

Finishers in every race will receive a commemorative t-shirt and medal. This year’s medal features Crathie Kirk and it’s the fourth in a series of five depicting well-known landmarks in and around the Balmoral estate. All finishers in the Devil of Deeside receive an additional special medal in recognition of their efforts.

There really is something for everyone and, in addition to the races, organisers put together a vibrant Event Village which offers a range of locally-based quality catering outlets and numerous fun activities for children.
