Room to Run

 About Huntly Room to Run

Now in its third year, Huntly Room to Run has added a 10k race, a 5k race and kids age group fun runs.

Approximate start time for the first event will be 10:00am, aiming for all runs to be finished by 12:30am.

All races start in Huntly's historic town square, go through the arch of the Simpson Building, follow the beautiful tree lined avenue past the ancient Huntly Castle, remarkable for its splendid architecture.

Both 5k & 10k routes then cross the Deveron River and up the long picturesque drive up to the Castle Hotel, thereafter continuing along Marquis Drive. At the end of Marquis Drive, the 10k continues up and around the Bin Forest with the 5k returning along the Jubilee footpath towards the town.

The 10k course is a mixture of road and forest trail, taking participants into the beautiful countryside that surrounds this historic market town.

Both 5k and 10k races finish back in the town square where participants will be cheered on by many family, friends and supporters as they cross the finish line.

Before and after the races, there will be lots of local craft and food stands celebrating the food and farming heritage of the area as part of the Huntly Hairst Festival.

Come along and make a day of it on the 3rd September in Huntly, lots of races and activities for all the family.
