The most Northerly 10K on British Mainland.

Castle of Mey 10K event will take place on 12 May 2013.

If you want to run then be quick. This 10k entry fills up very fast as seen in previous years.

Only 600 places and you enter at www.entrycentral.com.

The Castle of Mey 10k is the most northerly 10k on the British mainland, and is run in the beautiful grounds and surroundings of the historic 14th Century Scottish Castle, the Queen Mother's home in Caithness.

With the kind permission of the Castle and Gardens of Mey, North Highland Harriers are the proud organisers of the Castle of Mey 10K.

The course retains the 2012 route starting at the Castle of Mey and looping through Scarfskerry village before finishing back at the Castle of Mey. This fast flat course offers the runners some stunning scenery along the coastline and with good conditions on the day, both course records for the mens and womens race are up for grabs as well as personal best records for many runners returning from 2012.

2013 Race Entry
This year the Castle of Mey 10K event will take place on 12 May 2013.

Entry prices for 2013 are being held at 18 for Scottish Athletics (SA) affiliated runners, and 20 for non-SA affiliated runners.

Entry for the Castle of Mey 10K can be made from Monday 7th January when places will be available via www.entrycentral.com until the entry limit of 600 has been reached. Late entries on the day will be offered (subject to availability) if the entry limit has been reached.

New for this year will be the opportunity to order dryfit Castle of Mey teeshirts at time of entry for our first 600 entrants.

The Castle of Mey will continue to accept entries from runners over the age of 16 on race day although Scottish Athletics affiliated runners aged 15 can entry but they should first contact the Race Organisers. For safety reasons the Organisers are unable to accept entries from walkers due to the race course making use of the A836 Thurso to Mey road.
