The Baxters River Ness 10K Course

Perhaps you’re looking for the next step up from a 5K or are en-route to a half marathon or marathon?  Maybe you see it as an opportunity to raise funds for your favourite charity or a chance to run in a new scenic setting?  Possibly you are a club runner up for a new challenge?  Or, like many others, maybe you are simply looking for a fun and enjoyable way to keep fit and healthy and need a goal to work towards. Whatever your motivation, the Baxters River Ness 10K won’t disappoint!

If you prefer a team approach to sport, then the 10K Corporate Challenge for teams of 4-6 could be the ideal race for you.
