About this organisation

The newest addition to The Classic Run Series 2019 is the Ayr Classic 5 Mile Run which will take place on Sunday 6th October 2019. 

Home to The Scottish Grand National, participants will have the opportunity to run alongside the historic Ayr Racecourse and experience that finishing feeling under the gantry that only the world’s elite jockey’s get to experience.

The flat, multi terrain route of the Ayr Classic 5 Mile Run makes for the perfect challenge for the beginner runner to more experienced athletes.


What could you gain?

Volunteers have the opportunity to work at a new, mega road racing event, and will receive a branded Classic Run Series Rain Jacket and a packed lunch on race day, alongside experience to add to their CV for future opportunities.
