the Organiser

The Kirkcudbright Academy Half Marathon race and walk were established in 1983 to raise money for the School Funds. Since then, the event has been raising funds for the school benefiting decades of local children. The Beeches 11.2k was added in the 90's to offer a shorter race and one that pupils under 17 years could entre.

Every year hundreds of runners and walkers join us from all over the UK. Our entrants range from the highly competitive (and fast!) to the first time racers. Many, particularly our walkers, choose to use the event to raise money for charities. The event is run entirely by volunteers from school staff, pupils, parents, local Rotarians and our local Summer Festivities group. We all look forward to welcoming back our regulars and welcoming new entrants.  Come along with friends and family to support out school, enjoy the stunning Galloway scenery and take part on one of the most beautiful routes in the country!  

The three events:

  • The Half Marathon (17yrs+) – start: 11am
  • The Beeches 11.2k (16yrs+) Run – start: 11am
  • The Walk (open to all ages ) follows the half marathon route – start: 9am (not a race)

All finishers of our 3 events receive a medal, water, home (well, school!) baked goodies and donated fruit. 

There is a also a Family Fun Run (1.5 miles) organised by Kirkcudbright Primary school and entry for this is on the day only.

There is a dedicated parking area behind the school grounds - follow signs for the swimming pool. There are changing rooms and showers in the school but unfortunately we can't provide secure lockers. All finishers of our 3 events receive a medal, water, home (well school) baked goodies and donated fruit. You must be able to complete the course by 14.00.
