Entries are already coming in thick and fast for the 4th annual ‘Glenlivet 10K Road Race’ taking place on Sunday April 14th so please don’t leave it too late to enter as the race limit has been reached in the previous two years.

The race is rightly billed as ‘The Most Beautiful Run in Scotland’ and is based at the legendary Glenlivet Distillery in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park in Moray. The scenic, undulating and rural route is set around the babbling River Livet making the course a stunning landscape to run in and all runners receive a deserved ‘wee dram’ (Glenlivet Miniature) after the race as well as a goody bag and event medal.

The race is suitable for runners and joggers of all standards and uses electronic chip timing for race results and has fantastic race organisation and facilities. The event raises vital funds for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland through optional sponsorship and donations and a warm Highland welcome is always guaranteed from the local community.
