The proceeds of the Chapelton of Elsick 10K each year go to local charities and community groups. This year we have had to cancel the event due to the Covid 19 Coronavirus pandemic resulting in the charities we normally support missing out on much needed funds.
To continue to support two of the charities Pillar Kincardine and Portlethen Community Ambulance we are holding a 24 hour relay run. The relay will start at 3 pm on Saturday 11th July with the final runner finishing at The Hut in Liddell Park, Chapelton.
We have 24 local runners each running their own chosen route at there allotted time and will record the distance they cover in the hour.
We would greatly appreciate any support you can give by sponsoring our runners.
We have made the decision to cancel our Chapelton of Elsick 10k this year. Although disappointing to do so, we are sure it is the right decision at this time given the uncertainty that lies ahead in the upcoming months.
We are sure our runners and community will agree and support our decision as we all fight to slow down the spread of Coronavirus to save lives.
All runners will receive their refund in the next few days via Entry Central.
Please stay safe and we will see you all back in Chapelton next year.
A week after a very succesful RunChapelton – Chapelton of Elsick 10k and children’s fun runs the location of our event village in Hume Square will this Sunday be home for Chapelton’s first farmers market.
This Sunday, 21st July, come along 11am -3pm and see the produce and goods on sale from a great range of stall holders.
And of course our wonderful volunteers who gave up their time to marshal, manage registration, manage the water stations, manage the start/finish area, manage the home bakes stall, cycle, bake, and pour beer!
We also have to thank Elsick House for allowing us access to the grounds and estate for the race route and the staff at Elsick for assisting with the water station and the grounds staff that spent time making sure everything was looking good for race day both at Elsick and around Chapelton.
The residents of Chapelton and properties on the 10k course have also to be thanked for their cooperatio.
Thanks to you all! and roll on July 2020………..
