Run Balmoral

action from run Balmoral

Take a trip to the edge of the magnificent Cairngorms for your next race. Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you run through the grounds of the unbelievably beautiful Balmoral estate on historic Deeside. Follow in the footsteps of Paula Radcliffe, who ran a world record time here on the safe traffic-free roads, and Dame Kelly Holmes who tuned up for double Olympic gold by racing along the magnificent paths and trails around what was Queen Victoria's favourite home.

Join 5,000 other runners of all ages and abilities whose energy and enthusiasm creates a vibrant atmosphere at one of Scotland's greatest running festivals.

RunBalmoral celebrates its 21st anniversary on 21-22 April 2018 and it's an opportunity you shouldn't miss.

The first day of action begins with the MPH primary schools boys' and girls' 1.5km races, followed by the FOS Group secondary schools 2.5km. Then the adults take to the stage with the ConocoPhillips 5km and the Stena Drilling Tartan 10km.

If that doesn't whet your appetite, on day two we have the Apollo duathlon, the Trac 15 mile trail race and the Trac 3 Mile Wee Trail race.

And if you are particularly brave, then you must go for the Repsol Sinopec Devil of Deeside Challenge which involves taking part in the 5km, 10km, duathlon and 15 mile races.
