CRG 24hr Charity Relay

On 27th October 2023, members of the Chapelton Running Group are taking on the challenge of running a 24 hour non-stop relay in order to show our support for CRG founder, Chapelton 10K Race Director and all time running legend, Ann Gallon, who is bravely fighting another courageous battle with the Big C, and at the same time try and raise a bit of cash for Maggies Aberdeen who have been a fantastic support to Ann and are a charity close to her heart.

Chapelton 48 Hour Relay

Chapelton 48 hour relay to raise funds for local charities.

The proceeds of the Chapelton of Elsick 10K each year go to local charities and community groups. As there will be no event this year due to the Covid 19 Coronavirus pandemic the charities and community groups that would normally benefit will miss out on the much needed funds raised by the Chapelton 10k

To try and support local charity groups we held a 24 hour relay run in 2020 and raised just under £1500.

This year we have decided to make it a 48 hour relay event which will start at 6 pm on Friday 9th July with the final runner finishing at The Hut in Liddell Park, Chapelton at 6 pm Sunday 11th July.

Runners can select to run one or more of the individual hour time slots and run any route they wish . The final runner will finish at The Hut, Liddell Park, Chapelton.

We would greatly appreciate any support you can give by sponsoring our runners.

Chapelton 24 Hour Relay

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.

Thank you for the support.

Event Cancelled

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.
