Following the postponement of the 2020 event due to the Corona virus pandemic, Run Balmoral 2021 will take place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th April 2021. For the third year running, Kayleigh's Wee Stars are one of the affiliated charities and we have spaces available in both the 10K and 5K races on Saturday 17th April.
The Stena Drilling 10K takes you through some beautiful Highland scenery on the Balmoral Estate and will be clearly marked and well marshalled. The early part of the course is relatively fast on smooth tarmac, at approximately 3.5K the course rises quite steeply up through the woods of Garmaddie for approximately 1.2K! At the top of the famous “Hill” you will be met by the sound of the pipes before you enjoy the descent, which continues on the estate tracks then joins the fast, smooth tarmac for the return section back to Balmoral Castle and the final 300 metres to the finish line gantry.
The ConocoPhillips 5K all takes place on estate tarmac roads. The race begins heading west from the Castle adjacent the river Dee to a turn point at the Highland Pony Stud. There is a slight incline as the route returns to the castle via the “top road” which has magnificent views of Balmoral Castle and gardens.
If you wish to run either of these spectacular routes as part of the KWS team, please email email@example.com for further details and to register. We've covered the entry fee, we'll give you a Kayleigh's Wee Stars running t-shirt, and all we ask is for you to raise some funds for us in return!
