2019 Race Start -The Pad Race has long been part of Neilston Show, popularity with runners has increasied in the recent years.

Are you up to the 2020 challenge?

The 4.5 mile event starts in the Neilston Show field in Scotland's 6th highest village, and circles the iconic Neilston Pad (pictured above). This is primarily a trail race with a short section on public roads, and runners of all ability are welcome, - it’s a race for some and a run for others! Will you have time to enjoy views extending from Tinto Hill to Arran, or to spot the buzzards, dippers, stonechats, roe deer, foxglove and harebells along the route? Make a day of it and enjoy the Show once you pass the finish line.

Trophies are awarded for fastest male and female; and all participants will receive refreshments at the finish line.

Basic changing facilities are available for runners and bags can be left in the race tent (though it’s advisable not to leave anything valuable). Footwear is entirely your choice, but you’re unlikely to regret going for something with grip. You may well regret wearing your shiniest new trainers if you want them to stay immaculate!

Entrants for the run must be 16 years of age or over.
