With less than 3 weeks to  race day, the committee is hard at work on the final preparations! Pretty sure we have everything covered, only thing we cannot organise is the weather. Standard for Aberdeen so sure it won’t stop any of you anyway… #community

Registration for both the 10k race and the children’s races are in the Westhill Academy. Race Numbers, Timing chips and complimentary t-shirts will be collected at registration. The children’s races are on the Academy playing field. The 10k race will start next to the Ashdale Hall and finish on the Academy playing field.
