Online Entry system is now live


New Race Organiser;

After three successful years managing the event, Teacher,Musician and Retained Fire Fighter Michelle McClure has passed the baton to Richard Nash, of the Galloway Harriers.

After moving to Dumfries and Galloway in 2013 Richard took on the directorship of the ‘Roon the Watter’ 6 mile event, using all his experience and U.K.A. Official qualification to implement safer practises to ensure the success and longevity of not only that event, but now the K.A.H.M.

He has participated in several London marathons, Chaired County Athletics Associations, and when he heard the Kirkcudbright race was without an organiser, boldly stepped forward.

Kirkcudbright Academy raises money every year from the races to finance Activities Week, which enables all students to participate in a range of curricular and extra-curricular events. Your support is needed now more than ever. We look forward to seeing you there.
