Running Heaven At Sheriffmuir 11

Sherriffmuir

The Sheriffmuir 11 returns on 17 August after a one-year absence. The 11 mile race, now organised by Wee County Harriers, will this year feature a 'King of the Hill' challenge at the start.

The course has a 1/2 mile uphill start so whoever reaches the top of the hill first will receive the King of the Hill prize, providing the participant goes on to complete the race. This year’s event is sponsored by Up & Running, Stirling and the Sheriffmuir Inn where the race starts. The route is undulating and organisers say entrants should be capable of completing the distance in three hours.

Entries have been going well and George Furmage from Wee County Harriers told SCOTTISH RUNNING GUIDE: “I think the race previously attracted just under 100 entries, and it looks like we will exceeed that figure in 2014. As this will be the first year of running under the Wee County banner, there is the chance to set a course record for the winner.”
