5Km Hill Race

sponsored by Auchterhouse Country Sports

Our hill race has been running for longer than anyone can remember! We have people entering the race from all over the local area every year and our participation rates have recently been boosted by the fact that the hill race is now on the list of hill races to be completed as part of a course for the Hawkhill Harriers.

The race is open to all abilities and ages. There is no time limit for completing it (unless you are trying to beat your previous time!) and you may run or jog it. Please be aware though that the race does cover some rough terrain and you should be prepared to be running through long grass and heather.

There are participation medals for everyone who takes part in the hill race but we also have specific prizes for different categories as follows:

0 – 10 years

11 – 13 years

14 – 20 years


40 – 59 years

60+ years

You can help us to be a bit more streamlined by signing up online but this does not bind you to participating if you decide it’s not for you, or you can’t make it. To confirm your entry you should come along to the registration desk on the day to pay your £3 entry fee and collect your running number.

We hope you’ll enjoy challenging yourself by taking part in our hill race.
