CP&Co. Junior Run

In 2016 over 800 children aged four to 12 took part in the CP&Co. Junior Run – a new record!

With all routes based in the grounds at Garioch Sports Centre and Strathburn Park, the CP&Co. Junior Runs make a great introduction to running events for even the youngest children.

Parents are welcome to run alongside very young children, but please remember to remove your own timing chip beforehand.

The Routes

With the redevelopment of the GSC car park, the Junior Run routes have all been tweaked slightly.
