    Once again you guys smashed it out the park. A fantastic team that pull off the best events. The route is stunning (including strategically placed piper) the marshals are so encouraging and the organisation is second to none. Well done Tay Fitness. Can’t wait for Thornhill

    What a fantastic day! Such a well-organized event. This was my second time doing this 10k.
    The support from locals & marshals was even better the second time around. Loved the piper just after the halfway point. The route is varied & very scenic.
    Will definitely do this again. Thank you, Tay Fitness!!

    This was my first ever running event and have got to say it was amazing!! Very good set up, route was stunning, Marshall’s were very helpful, encouraging and friendly. Whole day was just an amazing experience and this certainly will not be my last time at this event! Would highly recommend anyone to give this a try!

    Brilliant event, best I’ve done so far. Well organised, great fun and huge encouragement from the marshalls, locals and fellow runner. Hills at 5k and 9.5k nearly ended me, but least I’d have gone with a smile,

  • Steph Brown (verified owner)

    Brilliant event, the marshals and volunteers really keep you going. I did the last one in October and signed up for this one as I loved it. The piper is well timed and gives a boost just when it’s needed. Well done to everyone involved in putting the event on 😊 Now to look forward to all the other Tay Fitness Events I have signed up to.

    A really fantastic day out! It was the most organised and friendliest sporting event I’ve ever been to. A special thank you to all of the volunteers for their continued support throughout! And the piper at the top of the hill was just perfect touch…
