Central Athletic Club is proud to present the 21st City of Stirling 10km Road Race and 2km Fun Run on Sunday 11 September 2022 over our usual well-established courses.
Run on our traditional course, our super fast route offers fantastic views of Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills. We have had the course officially measured and is certified to be accurate. In 2021 we had 33 of our top 50 finishers running a pb, and in 2019 36 of the top 50 finishers ran their best every time! Despite the super fast times recorded each year our race is not only for the speedy runners! It doesn’t matter if you run 30 minutes or 1 hour 30 minutes, everyone is welcome and the last finisher will get just as big a cheer as the first finisher! Our aim is to give all runners the chance of doing their best time but enjoying it whilst they do so.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors we are now able to bring some race improvements to not only help you run your pb, but to enjoy yourself as you do. Some features for 2022 are:
- Pacers to 40, 50 and 60 minutes. Easily identifiable by carrying a flag with target time.
- A piper at the most scenic parts of the course as you approach Wallace Monument.
- FREE pre and post race physio thanks to Life Fit Wellness.
- All entrants will be given the option of a race t-shirt, or if you would prefer, thanks to us working with Trees not Tees, we can plant a tree in your name with certification and picture emailed to you.
- Ladies fit t-shirts available (if opted for)
- Clock at half-way for 5k split time
- Goody bag to all finishers
- Early bird discount
There are individual prizes for age groups from 15 up to 60+ and prizes for the first male and female teams.
The race is run under Scottish Athletics rules.

2k Fun Run
Our 2k kids Fun Run is for ages 7 to 14 and will start at 9:30am. The fun run is an out and back course which follows the 10k route to the 1k mark where runners turn and head back in to the finish. Adults are more than welcome to run with kids on the day, just no dipping at the finish line!
Adults are free to accompany kids in the run and do not need to sign up.
All finishers will receive a goody bag.
Perfect Timing will be in attendance and will post race results on their website www.perfecttiminngscotland.co.uk . You will also receive a free text message with your finishing time within seconds of you crossing the line.

When is it?
The 10km race starts at 10.15 on Sunday 11 September 2022, with the 2km Fun Run at 9.30.
How do I find the car park and start?
The race starts and finishes at The Peak at Stirling Sports Village in Stirling. The nearest postcode to the start and car park is FK7 7UJ. If you’re using What Three Words, it’s ///ironic.sentences.switched
There is ample parking at Forthbank Stadium, beside the start, and traffic marshals will be in attendance to direct you. Please use designated parking area. Runners are advised not to use Morrison’s supermarket car park and should not park on the clear way at The Peak.
There are a number of electric charging points close by at Forthbank Stadium and at both Stirling Retail Park park and ride (800m from start/finish) and a large number at The Vue Cinema just after the 1km mark.
Do you have to be a Club runner to enter the 10k?
No, definitely not! The race is open to anyone aged 15 or over.
Is it a tough course?
No – the course is flat and fast – ideal for first time 10k runners, or those of you looking for an improved time.
Can I just walk the 10k for fun?
This is a 10km road race and we don’t really recommend it for walkers. The course will not be marshalled or policed from about 11.20am so we couldn’t guarantee the safety of participants finishing after this time.
Can I wear headphones?
To ensure that participants can hear traffic noise and instructions from marshals, we do not allow the wearing of headphones except bone-conduction headphones.
Do I have to enter before the race?
Yes – entry website details are above. Applications will be accepted through the entry website until shortly before the event or until the race limit is reached – so make sure you get your entry in early.
