Your predicted race time is very important to make sure you start the event beside entrants of a similar ability. If you are a first-timer it is sometimes hard to predict your time so here are some examples to help you. Remember it is better to over-estimate how long it will take you than under-estimate.
2011 race winner, Luke Traynor – 31 minutes! Blink and you missed him!
Miss Scotland, Jennifer Reoch – 54 minutes (under an hour is a very good time if you have trained properly and will run the full course. Well done Jen!)
Jogging the course only – about 1 hour and 25 minutes
Walking the whole course with good training – about 1 hour and 55 minutes.
The 2011 winner, Joseph Birech – 1 hour and 1 minute!
Top Scottish & UK club runners (people who run several times a week and cover loads of miles in training) – between 1 hour 10 minutes and 1 hour 25 minutes.
In Demand Scotland DJ Romeo – 1 hour and 55 minutes (any time under 2 hours is very good but will require several weeks of suitable training)
Jogging the course only – at least 2 hours and 30 minutes
Walking at a very brisk pace after good training – over 3 hours and 30 minutes.
You must submit your entry by 17 August 2012 to ensure your race pack will be posted to you in time for race day. You may still enter after this date but you or a representative will be required to collect your race pack from our race office on 31 August or 1 September 2012.
Please note – on race day itself, there will be no facility either to enter the race or collect Race Packs.
