The Pad Race

Saturday 4th May 2024 – Race Start 10am

The 4.5 mile event has a little bit of everything; road, path, trail and of course a splattering of mud. The event starts from the Neilston Show field in Scotland’s 6th highest village, and circles the iconic Neilston Pad. This is primarily a trail race featuring a decent climb, with a short linking section on public roads. Runners of all ability are welcome – it’s a race for some and a run for others! We plan to use the usual route, though this may be changed if forestry work is being carried out. Entry to Neilston Show is included, so why not make a day of it and enjoy the show once you pass 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). Parts of the course will be muddy so you are strongly advised to wear off-road shoes.

Entrants for the race must be 16 years of age or older.

Starting Point: Neilston Show Field, Uplawmoor Road, Neilston, G78 3LE.

Registration: 8.45am to 9.45am at the Pad Race Tent on the Show Field. (Registration closes promptly at 9.45am). The compulsory pre-race briefing takes place at 9.50am outside the Pad Race Tent.

Online entries close at midnight on Thursday 2nd May 2024. On the day entry will be £12 (£6 to enter the Show Field and £6 race entry – cash only).

No refunds given unless the race is cancelled.
