Knock Hill Race (8.5 miles) – 11am

The first Knock Hill Race took place in 1970 as a fund raiser towards creating a playing field for Cornhill. It was a great success and became an annual event.  2018 will be the 48th Knock Hill Race to take place.

The distance covered from Cornhill to the top of the Knock Hill and back to Cornhill is 8.5 miles.  It is a gruelling task having a road and hill race in one but it has lasted for the duration and is sure to keep going for many years to come.  The front runners are usually back within an hour.  1 hour and 45 minutes is the deadline for completion of the race to receive a certificate of completion.

The minimum age to enter the race is 16 years.  Entry fee is £10, which includes entry to the Games and hospitality tea/coffee and cake after the race (£7 payable at gate upon entry to Games field, then £3 payable at Race registration at Secretary’s Caravan).

Registration will take place on the day at the Secretary’s Caravan on site from 10.00am – 10.45am.    Please complete and bring along the application form.  On the day entries welcome.  Knock Hill Race Application Form
