The Directors and the Management Team of RunBalmoral are delighted to announce the launch of the 2014 event.
The Overall Sponsors are Stena Drilling and ConocoPhillips and they are supported on the Saturday by Kongsberg and McIntosh Plant Hire.
This year we have Charities involved including Gastrocan, VSA, Clic Sargent, Clan Cancer Support, Archie Foundation, Alfie Milne Lymphangiomatosis Trust, MacMillan Cancer Support and Simeon Care for the Elderly. The 2013 event raised £100,000+ which delighted everyone and gives the challenge for next year to exceed that figure.
In excess of 8000 people came along in 2013 and we look to increasing this attendance of participants and spectators in 2014. Come along and be part of the biggest participating event in Aberdeenshire.
This event is very much on the running calendar and continues to attract runners from far afield and the Sunday will have two races which are being developed ---the 15 mile Trail race and a new 3mile Trail race to run concurrently. Sponsors have been approached and we hope to announce these shortly.
The important dates for your diaries are 26 and 27 April 2014 for the weekend of running at Balmoral and booking will open for this at noon on 28 October. History shows we have had to close entries early so don’t leave it too late to enter.
