The 81st staging of the Forres Highland Games will take place on Saturday 11th July 2009 in the ancient Royal Burgh's Grant Park. The Moray Coast games include a hilly 10k, which starts at the unusual time of 14:40. The cost is unusual too at £3.50 for SAL members and £5.50 for non-members. However don't expect to be provided with water, medals or goody bags. This is raw running at it's traditional best!
You can also take the opportunity to try a shorter distance when you are there, the Games include a range of races between 100 and 3000m as well as various other non racing events such as Tossing the Caber, Putting the Shot and Throwing the Hammer.Full Details
