10K & 3K Races:

The Middleton Trust 10K Road Race takes place round the streets of the historic Aberdeenshire town of Ellon, the “Gateway to Buchan”. The popular 3K Fun Run uses the initial part of the course round Meiklemill.

When it’s happening
The 3K Fun Run and 10K Road Race are scheduled for 11 September 2016.

Online Entry - available from 1 May 2016.

The Race Course
Starting at Gordon Park [behind the Victoria Hall, Station Road], the route takes runners over the River Ythan and round the Meiklemill Estate. This constitutes the first 3K of the course and is used by the Fun Runners earlier in the day. Recrossing the river, runners follow the Modley Burn up to Station Road [B9005] and then head west, eventually circumnavigating the Esslemont estate. Exiting Esslemont, and having dealt with the odd gradient, runners cross the B9005 [with extreme care!] and head east into the streets of Auchterellon which includes the steepest parts of the course. Leaving Auchterellon, runners head south on the Formartine and Buchan Way, recrossing Station Road [with extreme care!] and then heading back over the Ythan to Meilklemill via the old railway bridge. With the finish line less than 2 kilometers away, runners head east down Barratt Drive and, crossing the Ythan for the last time sprint back to Gordon Park.                                     You can access the 3K and 10K routes from the links at the bottom of this page.
