About Neilston Pad Race

The Pad Race has long been part of Neilston Show, and we are delighted at its return this year.

The 4.5 mile event starts in the Neilston Show field in Scotland's 6th highest village, and circles the iconic Neilston Pad (pictured above). This is primarily a trail race with a short section on public roads, and runners of all ability are welcome, - it’s a race for some and a run for others! Will you have time to enjoy views extending from Tinto Hill to Arran, or to spot the buzzards, dippers, stonechats, roe deer, foxglove and harebells along the route? Make a day of it and enjoy the Show once you pass the finish line.

Trophies are awarded for fastest male and female; fastest under-21 year old; fastest male vet; fastest female vet, and all participants will receive refreshments at the finish line.

Basic changing facilities are available for runners and bags can be left in the race tent (though it’s advisable not to leave anything valuable). Footwear is entirely your choice, but you’re unlikely to regret going for something with grip. You may well regret wearing your shiniest new trainers if you want them to stay immaculate!

Entrants for the run must be 16 years of age or over.

The run is held under UK Athletic rules and is a Scottish Athletics registered event.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Neilston Pad Race are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
