The 2019 event is on 28th December with entries open subject to availability via EntryCentral.  This year the event will be chip timed and we have an increased number of spaces available.  Due to the time of year provision will be made for a later running should weather force cancellation.

 

Race HQ is the Devonvale Hall, Tillicoultry, FK13 6NS where you can collect your race number and Williams Bros beer for over 18s, use the toilet facilities, get changed, and leave your bag (at your own risk). There are no showers unfortunately.  Hot drinks as well as pies and soup from William Sword Bakery will be served there after the event.

 

The course, for the most part, follows the Devon Way from Tillicoultry to Dollar and back. To avoid a dead turn, and allow you to keep the momentum going,  you will come off the Devon Way in Dollar for a 1km loop, before re-joining and heading homeward to Tillicoultry.  Apart from two wee sections of hardpack gravel at either end, the route is tarred wide pathway, and for all intents and purposes is flat, sheltered and traffic free.

 

This means it’s a fast one, so as such we have had Scottish Athletics accurately measure out 10km. To ensure all is in order we operate per UK Athletics rules and under a Scottish Athletics permit.  Your result will therefore be valid toward national ranking statistics. However, the event is open to all, and if pace is not your thing, then you’ve got the lovely Devon River valley to enjoy, as well as views of the Ochil hills.
