June is the perfect time to run Roon the Toon

Fri, 12 May 2017

Kilmarnock’s 10k road race, Roon the Toon, will take place in just four weeks time on Sunday 11 June.

The event, which is in its second year, is organised by the Kilmarnock Harriers in partnership with East Ayrshire Council and the Ayrshire Roads Alliance.

The runners will start from the Ayrshire Athletics Arena and the course will follow

Queens Drive – Welbeck Street – Old Mill Road – Fowlds Street – St Marnock Street – Dundonald Road – Holmes Road – U34 – Dundonald Road – John Finnie Street – West George Street – Portland Street – The Cross – King Street – Fowlds Street – Old Mill Road – Welbeck Street – Queens Drive

finishing back at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena.

The affected roads will be closed from 09:00 until 12:00 and signed diversions will be in place.

The course is very fast and is suited to runners who are aiming to set a personal best. The calibre of club runners is set to be very high as the race will incorporate the annual West of Scotland 10k Championship.

The fastest runners are expected to finish the course in just over 30 minutes.

Double European gold medallist and Rio Paralympian Sammi Kinghorn will also be in Kilmarnock on the day competing in an invitational wheelchair race which will start just before the main race.
