The uniquely popular Ellon Road Races are organised by The Middelton Trust. The 3K is a fun family event that promotes good health and sportsmanship. It is open to individuals of any size, shape, age and ability looking to run a fast and flat course for fun. The 5K and 10K attracts runners from all over Scotland and continues to provide fierce competition for the 12 cash prizes on offer in each distance.
The new route to mark the 30th anniversary of the event is around the streets, along the old railway line and follows the edge of the river Ythan featuring some lovely views of Ellon. It has been described as a runners route and has great potential for some P.B. times!
At the end of the 10K all runners are invited back to the British Legion Hall to enjoy some soup, sandwiches and cakes, followed by the 10K Prize Ceremony.
