The River Ayr Way Challenge
A huge well done to the ultra runners and relay runners who took part in the River Ayr Way Challenge this year and helped make it's 10 year anniversary a special one. The 2016 results are posted in the links below and the date for the 2017 Challenge will be posted in due course.
The River Ayr Way was opened in 2006 and is now attracting around 100,000 people to walk it each year. We have a number of events along the River Ayr Way throughout the year but the River Ayr Way Challenge is the most popular and by far the most challenging event.
Each year, many of the participants choose to take part in the Challenge as a sponsored event and you are welcome to raise sponsorship for a charity of your choice.
To date sponsorship has been raised for various charities including the Cancer Research UK, the Fairy Box Charity and Scottish Cancer Support.
In registering, you are accepting the River Ayr Way Challenge terms and conditions. You are declaring that you are medically fit, will abide by the rules and regulations of the event and understand that you are entering entirely at your own risk to yourself and your belongings.
There is also a relay option for the River Ayr Way Challenge which can be done in teams of 2 or 3 if a 40 mile run doesn't appeal! The course is split into 3 sections:
Section 1: Glenbuck to Sorn, 17 miles, mainly off road, rural paths
Section 2: Sorn to Annbank, 14 miles, mainly off road, rural paths. Some on road sections.
Section 3: Annbank to Ayr, 9 miles, mainly on road and tarmac paths
Water stops at the 2016 Cairn Table Race and River Ayr Way Challenge were provided by Eden Springs.
