Fun In The Mud

Fun in the MudFun In The Mud is the Kilmarnock Open Cross Country Festival which takes place over the fields, parks and trails around the Ayrshire Athletics Arena (only 25 minutes from central Glasgow without traffic). This year’s event is on Sunday 13 November.

There are 10 races (7 starts) with categories from Under 11 to Masters. First race is at 12.30 with registration from 11.00.

The event is open to everyone and is entry on the day. However, pre-notification of your intention to run (without commitment) will help reduce time at entry. You can do this following this link. Here you will also find all the event information including directions, parking, timings and course maps and also via the Facebook page

Thanks to the generosity of the event sponsor – Scottish Power Energy Networks – there are attractive individual and team prizes in all categories.

The course is ‘traditional’ cross country featuring a variety of running surfaces, the odd hill, a wee bit of standing water and lots of mud!

If you have never tried it before you really must give cross country a go. It is challenging, character building and rewarding – but above all it is great FUN!
