They're off - competitors in Run Garioch 2016

The last chance for runners to secure a place in this month’s Dandara 10k or EBLAST 5k is on Sunday (March 5)

Both events are now closed to the public, but Run Garioch’s seven charity partners all have limited entries to both events still available.

The Run Garioch event will be held on Sunday, March 26.

Race director Eric Simpson said: “Yet again the Dandara 10k and EBLAST 5k have sold out well before the official deadline for entries.

“We urge anyone who still wants to take part on March 26 to get in touch with one of our charity partners as soon as possible to secure their place.

“The entry system must close next week to allow our timing partners to prepare and post race packs. This really is your last chance.”

The Garioch 10k, now known as the Dandara 10k, is where it started for Run Garioch 11 years ago.

Runners must be 16 or over on race day.

Run Garioch’s seven charity partners are: Aberlour Trust, AFC Community Trust, Befriend a Child, CLAN, Charlie House, Cash for Kids and Inspire Partnership.
