Entries are open for the popular Arran 10k race, sponsored by the Ormidale Hotel.

The Ormidale 10k run, on Sunday April 24, is organised by Arran Runners and licensed by Scottish Athletics.

The event, with a minimum entry age of 16, takes place entirely on flat public roads. Competitors start at Ormidale Pavilion and follow the A841 north along the coast, before returning along the same route to finish at the start line.

Trophies will be awarded after the race to the first male and female athlete. The first local male and female will also receive shields, as will the first team of three, the first under-20 male and female, as well as numerous other age-related categories.

The 10k event, which has been going for more than 30 years, is expected to be well attended. The last two races were cancelled as a result of the covid pandemic. This year’s race is limited to 150 runners.

Race organiser Tommy Gilmore, of Arran Runners, has also revealed it again intends to host three trail races introduced last year in Brodick, Lamlash and Whiting Bay. Further details about these events will be made available at a later date.

Bookings for the Ormidale 10k can be made at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?elid=Y&event_id=9426 up to Friday April 22.
