Chairman's Message

Welcome to RunBalmoral. Once again we are delighted to see so many runners and their families choosing to come to our event. In fact, it’s not our event, it’s YOUR event. The atmosphere over the two days of the running festival promises to be better than ever because of the enthusiasm shown by participants, spectators, volunteers and all those who come along to be part of what is a fantastic occasion.


We have record numbers of runners taking part. The MPH Primary schools 1.5K boys’ and girls’ races have attracted 1,000 entrants and we also have our biggest ever entry for the Kongsberg Maritime Secondary Schools 2.5K. The ConocoPhillips 5K and the Stena Drilling Tartan 10K also boast full houses, so the Saturday programme will be as busy and exciting as ever. I must thank the sponsors of these races for their continuing support.


Sunday also promises to be a thrilling occasion as we host the first Apollo Duathlon which sold out very quickly and we also have our biggest ever entry for the Glacier Energy 15 mile trail race. I am delighted to welcome Apollo and Glacier Energy to Balmoral this year as new sponsors and we hope they enjoy being part of what is one of the north east’s biggest participation sporting events. The Wee Trail race, also on Sunday, is once again part of the Jogscotland Challenge series.


On behalf of the Board of RunBalmoral and the Management Team, I’d like to thank all our sponsors, charities, volunteers, suppliers, runners and spectators, all of whom make this a tremendously vibrant event. I also wish to thank Aberdeenshire Council for its support and Balmoral Estate, not only for making this wonderful venue available, but also for all the hard work put in by staff to ensure everything runs so smoothly.


Hope you all enjoy it and I wish every participant the very best of luck.


James Knowles
Chairman of Balmoral Road Races Ltd
