May 27th 2017 is the date for the 34th Kirkcudbright Academy Half Marathon!




There are three events to chose from:

  • The Half Marathon (18yrs+) – start: 1pm
  • The Beeches 11.2k (15yrs+) Run – start: 1pm
  • The Walk (open to all ages ) follows the half marathon route – start: 11am

There is a also a Family Fun Run (1.5 miles) organised by Kirkcudbright Primary school – start 1.20pm

This year (2016) runners in the Kirkcudbright Academy Half Marathon and 11k runs will register with the SiEntries system, the race timing system widely used across the UK.   Every competitor in the Half Marathon and 11k will receive their own chip to record accurately their start time and end time, and the chips MUST be returned at the end of the race. The results will be available on the SPORTident website shortly after the races have finished.

Please note, the Half Marathon Walk is included in the SPORTident system.

(Though entry forms can be printed up from this website)

Please check our Facebook page where you can enjoy chatting to other participants and see more photos of the routes.

This event is run by volunteers, so if you would like to contribute in anyway, please do  get in touch!

We very much enjoy hosting the event, and having visitors come from all over Britain and other parts of the world. And we look forward to seeing you again this year!

Come along and invite friends to enjoy stunning scenery on some of the most beautiful routes in the country!
