KEEN BATTLE ANTICIPATED IN THE STENA DRILLING - HARBOUR ENERGY CORPORATE CHALLENGE AT RUN BALMORAL 2023

Heres some of the  Harbour Harriers team (and family) with the magnificent Corporate Challenge trophy they won at Run Balmoral last year.

But will they be able to hold onto it in 2023 - or will some other company or organisation wrest it from their grasp?

There’s sure to be plenty of keen competition which tests competitors in the 5k and 10k race on day one of the Run Balmoral weekend.

Each team must field four runners in the Harbour Energy 5km and four runners in the Stena Drilling Tartan 10K.  The same runners can compete in both the 5km and the 10km if they so wish – and if they feel up to it! Or a fresh line-up can be fielded in each race. The chip time of each of the four runners in each race will be added together to give an overall score and the team with the lowest combined total from the two races will win the trophy. Teams can be all male, all female, or a combination of both.

So, get your squad together now and get ready to battle.

We will once again hold races for all ages groups over a variety of distances. So, no matter what your preference, there’s something for you at Run Balmoral. And, of course, the Devil of Deeside offers the ultimate challenge.
