The Keepsafe Perth 10K

Perth 10KThe Keepsafe Perth 10K has been going for over 30 years and offers a scenic, flat and fast course along the banks of the River Tay that is ideal for anyone looking for a personal best or those starting out and about to do their first event.

The Keepsafe Perth 10K starts on the North Inch and follows the riverside path network with an easy view of Scone Palace as you head out. The route takes a left turn just before the bridge at the A9 and heads towards Arran Road and the North Muirton Industrial Estate.

At the end of Arran Road, there's a left turn onto Bute Drive all the way along to the Riverside Church, turning in and onto the path passing the football pitches before rejoining the riverside path. Runners will return to the North Inch and go in a clockwise direction before returning to the grass and a wonderful sprint to the finish line.

Perth 10KThe Keepsafe Perth 10K race takes place on Sunday 28 August at 11am and costs £16 for Scottish Athletics members and £18 for non-members (no entries on the day). All runners will receive a medal and a souvenir T-shirt. For more information, please visit www.perth10k.co.uk
