New Deer Fun Run
5km & 10km – 17 May 2020
All Weather Facility
NEW DEER FUN RUN invites you to run the inaugural New Deer 5km & 10km fun run on Sunday 17th May 2020. The event has been organised to raise funds for Aberdeen Foyer. This is part of the Deloitte One Million Futures program aimed at helping get one million people get to where they want to be through access to education and employment. As part of the fundraiser the organiser will be taking part in Deloitte’s Ride Across Britain cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats – 980 miles over 9 days.
The aim is for this to be an annual fun run to help support local causes.
There will be very limited parking available at the event, and it is requested that any attendees do not block the local access roads or streets. There is additional parking available at New Deer School, New Deer public hall and on Auchreddie Road at the base of the brae.
Registration is online only through Entry Central, however limited on the day entries may be available if spaces are available.
Registration is at the All Weather Facility (AB53 6SB) with ample changing and toilets for on the day entry. This will only be possible if the maximum entrants limit has not been reached.
The run starts (and finishes) at the All Weather Facility at New Deer. The first 2km is on a local trail and within the New Deer show park after which you turn back and head up towards the highest point of the course at the Culsh Monument. This is not for the faint hearted, there is a serious climb to the top but the views are more than worth it. From this point onwards it is downhill all the way, along the down the high street and back to the start.
