Round Arran Relay

July 19, 2014 @ 7:00 am – July 20, 2014 @ 7:00 pm

Our club has a long involvement in this race. There are 6 stages each between 7.5 miles & 11.5

miles. It is not a real relay because runners on each stage are taken by bus and all runners on each

stage start at the same time.

Please check out the race website:

We are only guaranteed one competitive team but there will be opportunities to join other

incomplete teams.

  • North Stage 1 Blackwaterfoot to Pirnmill 11.5 miles (undulating)
  • North Stage 2 Pirnmill to Bogullie 10.5 miles (major climb towards the end)
  • North Stage 3 Bogullie to Brodick 11 miles (downhill and flat)
  • South Stage 1 Blackwaterfoot to Lagg Inn 7.5 miles (sharply undulating)
  • South Stage 2 Lagg Inn to Whiting Bay 8.5 miles (quite hilly)
  • South Stage 3 Whiting Bay to Brodick 8.5 miles (some longish climbs)

The bus will leave sharp from St. Margaret’s Academy at 7am on Saturday morning, catching the

9.45am Calmac ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick (the ferry takes about 55 mins).

Some people go for the race only and come back on the 4.40pm or 7.20pm ferry that evening.

After the race we generally all have an evening meal in either Lamlash or Brodick. Then the bus

goes to a campsite in Lamlash (about 3.5 miles south of Brodick)

On Sunday we go for a run together and then explore the island before catching the 4.40pm ferry

back home.
