Kilmarnock’s 10k road race, Roon the Toon, will make a welcome return on Sunday 22 August at 10am.
The event, which had to take a break last year due to Covid-19 restrictions, has been organised safely and in full compliance with Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance by the Kilmarnock Harriers, in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, the Ayrshire Roads Alliance and East Ayrshire Leisure.
The runners will start from the Ayrshire Athletics Arena and the course will follow:
Queens Drive – Welbeck Street – Old Mill Road – Fowlds Street - St Marnock Street – Dundonald Road – Holmes Road – U34 – Dundonald Road – John Finnie Street – West George Street – Portland Street – The Cross – King Street – Fowlds Street – Old Mill Road – Welbeck Street – Queens Drive
finishing back at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena.
The course is very fast and is suited to runners who are aiming to set a personal best. The fastest runners are expected to finish the course in just over 30 minutes.
The affected roads will be closed from 09:00 until 12:00 and signed diversions will be in place for the duration of the event. The road closures will mean that access to EV charging points will be restricted at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena and at points along the route. Please plan ahead and make alternative arrangements.
