City of Stirling 10km Road Race – Sunday 12 September 2021
Central Athletic Club is proud to present the 20th annual City of Stirling 10k.
The fast, flat and scenic route is the same as recent years and offers something to runners of all abilities, starting and finishing outside The Peak at Stirling Sports Village.
There are individual prizes for age groups from 15 up to 60+ and prizes for the first male and female teams. The race will be the Scottish Championships once again, as it has been since 2010.
Things are a bit different this year because of the pandemic – we are not running the normal 2k fun run and there is a limit of just 500 entries for the 10k.
The race is run under Scottish Athletics rules: licence number 11702
How do I enter?
Entries are through the Sport Systems website at http://www.sportsystems.co.uk/ss/event/Stirling10k2021 .
Where do I get further information and my number?

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 10k 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 Sport Systems website until shortly before the event or until the race limit is reached – so make sure you get your entry in early.
