Bristow 15 Mile Trail Race

An epic 15 miles of Highland scenery. There is something special about this event! You start in view of Balmoral Castle and run out west adjacent the magnificent river Dee before beginning a gradual climb through the Ballochbuie pine forest. Then at mile 8, you leave the river and begin a climb to the base of Lochnagar, an ascent of about 120 meters. The last 3 miles are a rush as you hurtle down towards the Castle once again; but beware..there is a sting in the tail!

3mile-content-slider-1-3

Bristow 3 Mile Trail Race

Don’t be fooled into thinking the Bristow 3 Mile trail race is an easy option! This fast little trail race heads off adjacent to the river Dee before turning up hill. In just 2 miles you climb 350 Meters, before a fast descent for the last mile. A mix of tarmac, track and slippy grass, this is a true all terrain event!

Weekend Challenges

15mile-content-slider-1-7

reasons to run with us!

Regular running helps you stay fit and healthy.

Spectacular Scenery

Enjoy the fresh air and the spectacular scenery, from mountains to the castle and its landscaped grounds.

Fun for friends and families

A great day out for runners and spectators, with an event village on site.

Raise money for charity

It is an opportunity to not only get fit and have a great day out, but to make a donation to a nominated charity.

We are so pleased to announce that Run Balmoral is returning in 2022.

 

It has been a long wait since our last event, in 2019, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during what has been a traumatic time for so many people.

 

The support we have received from runners, sponsors, suppliers and the wider local community has been terrific and, although significant challenges remain, we are excited to be able to confirm that our full programme of races is planned to go ahead over the weekend of April 23-24.

 

Entries are now open and we would encourage you to sign up as soon as possible as limited places are available as a large number of people have deferred places from 2020 and 2021.

 

If you have already deferred from a previous year,and have confirmation of this, then you don’t need to take any further action at this point. If your original entry was part of a company block booking you should contact your company regarding a new entry.

 

We will be continuing with our series of special medals depicting notable landmarks within and around the Balmoral Estate. The 2022 medal will feature Balmoral Castle.So, don’t miss out on the chance to secure one of these limited edition mementos.

Chairman, Balmoral Road Races Ltd

Run Balmoral

Here's our winners of the Stena Dilling-Harbour Energy Corporate Team Challenge:
It's the Harbour Harriers who secured the prestigious title for the first time under this name but, perhaps better known previously as Cops and Joggers, they have five previous victories to their credit. So, the magnificent trophy, made from red deer antler and sycamore wood, will remain in the possession of the squad whose company is one of Run Balmoral’s key sponsors. A team from another of our  major sponsors,Stena Drilling, finished third.  Great to see a team representing our gold charity VSA, taking part and finishing fourth behind Harbour Energy.

Here's the winning team: left to right Neil Emslie, Ross Forbes, Jonathan Murray (Team Captain), Russell Willox, Ross Aird and Matthew Thompson. Missing from the team photo was Joe Hippey.The youngster is Ross Aird's daughter Lola.

We want to thank everyone who came along to this weekend's Run Balmoral races. It was an amazing occasion enjoyed by thousands of runners of all ages.
A special thanks to our sponsors, volunteers and suppliers without whom the event could not have happened.
And it was fantastic to see so many people supporting our official race charities.
The support from the huge number of spectators who cheered home every runner contributed hugely to the occasion.
We hope to see you all again in 2023.
In the meantime you can check out the hundreds of photos we are posting on our Facebook pages over the next few days.

Great event thanks for a brilliant day! You weren’t kidding about the “sting in the tail” on the 15 mile trail!

Is there results for the Devil of Deeside?
