The Great Carradale Canter 2017

This year The Great Carradale Canter is taking place on Sunday 25th June 2017. The route will be the same as in previous years, both the 10k and the 5k races starting and finishing at Carradale Harbour. The course enjoys a hilly start on the local roads before heading for Carradale Bay and then forest roads, finally returning to the village across fields to Shore Road and back to the Harbour. The 5k run follows a similar route but has short cut after the beach. A map will be included in the entrant pack to be emailed out to all participants.
The 5k course is actually 5.7k in length.
