Kayleigh's Wee Stars Barra 10K 2024

The Kayleigh's Wee Stars Barra 10k is back and will be held on Saturday the 25th May 2024. This is a popular and challenging multi terrain trail over the Barra Hill with spectacular views across the North East countryside. The atmosphere is welcoming and fun and has something for everyone. It's family friendly too with junior races taking place before the main event. Don't miss out, this is definitely one to include in your 2022 calendar. ** ENTRIES NOW OPEN ** Active Schools will be organising junior races prior to the main 10K. You can enter/register your child for the race using the link on our website. Active Schools will contact you 3 weeks prior to the race to confirm your entry and the joining details. The 10K Route = 2K Road, 3K Cross Country, 5K Road. The start (and finish) is at Oldmeldrum Academy leading on to the fields at the foot of the Barra Hill. At this point, you will enter the cross country section of the course. The climb to the summit of Barra Hill is about 1km, where you will enjoy panoramic views of Aberdeenshire. The route then takes you onto the Bourtie Road for a fast, downhill second half road section as you wind back into Oldmeldrum. This is a Scottish Athletics Licensed Event, and is open to age 16+. The entire route will be well sign posted and heavily marshalled.
