This year all entrants into the 10k and 5k races will be tracked using chip technology, so if you'd like to try for a PB then you'll have your time recorded down to the second. Registration is now open, we expect the runs to be very popular; last year was a total sell out so register early to avoid disappointment.
All proceeds will go to the Dirleton Playgroup.
