Balmoral Castle the backdrop to the race

Tell us your story - 22 December 2011

The grounds of Balmoral Castle provide a stunning setting for our road races every year and it is little surprise that the Deeside estate has been voted by competitors as Britain's most scenic running venue.

Some of the country's best athletes battle for the top prizes at the head of the field, while many others take the opportunity to raise thousands of pounds for various worthy charities.

There are so many reasons why people come to Balmoral, but we'd like to hear why YOU enjoy competing here or are planning to compete here. Tell us about the highs and lows of any previous visits to Balmoral. What motivates you to take part in the races?  Why are you planning to come to Balmoral? What is your goal?

We want to hear from you. Tell us a little about yourself and your interest in running and what you think about the Balmoral races.

We'd like to publish some of the stories on our website over the coming weeks and months.This is your chance to share your thoughts and running experiences about Balmoral with thousands of other runners.
