2024 CP&Co Junior Run

This year, the CP&Co. Junior Run will start and finish in the fields behind Strathburn Park, to the west of the GSC’s 3G football pitch.

Runners should head to the waiting zone at the times indicated for their categories. There will be event marshals and signage in the area to direct them. Please also feel free to ask the marshals or staff at Junior Run HQ for assistance or information at any time.

Parents/guardians are NOT permitted within the waiting area. For good views of all the races, head to the start/finish area and the ‘hills’ next to the path on the Burghmuir Drive side of the park.

After finishing their races, runners will be directed to the finish zone, where they will await collection.

For the first time, children who will be 12 on race day will have the choice to enter Category 3 of the Junior Run or the Mackie's 5K.
