Entries are open
The Linlithgow 10K and Junior Fun Run is a prestigious and long running community road running event organised by Linlithgow Athletics Club. Last year nearly 40% of competitors were from the local area. The event raises a modest amount of money that is used to help fund the work the club does in promoting and providing opportunities for Athletics in our community. No individuals within our organisation gain financially from the event in any way.
