If you’re planning to use your new GPS watch at the Nairn Turkey Trot on Boxing Day (26 December), you’ll have to wait until another event. Organisers of the 5K, Nairn Road Runners, have banned timekeeping devices and are instead asking participants to guess their finish times.
The runner whose guess is closest to his/her actual time wins a prize. There will also be prizes on offer for the best fancy dress costumes with spot prizes throughout. The race is £4 to enter or free if you come in fancy dress. Though it should be noted that wearing a hat does not constitute fancy dress.
Children running with parents are welcome as the emphasis is on fun rather than competition. For more information, visit the Nairn Road Runners website.
