The event starts and finishes at the town's Waterford industrial estate near Keith Builders on Saturday, May 13 with entry open until midnight on Tuesday, May 9 - enter here.

The race doubles up as the North District Championship 10k.

The male and female winners of this year's race will receive a trophy in memory of the late Hamish Cameron, a Harriers stalwart who helped to set up the event more than 40 years ago.

Last year's winner was RAF runner Adam Baker in a fast time of 31 minutes, 15 seconds, 40 seconds ahead of Scottish international and Moray Road Runner Kenny Wilson.

A Forres native won the female race with Kirstie Rogan, representing Highland Hill Runners, coming home first in 39:17.

The course is slightly different to previous years with an amended start and finish.

Registration will take place between noon and 1.30pm in St Leonards Church Hall on the High Street. There is a walk of about 20 minutes to the start.

The usual walk across the railway crossing is no longer open. People who are going to the start need to walk over the new road bridge to the left of the railway station to go to the start. There is also a small bridge at the railway station. Please take care crossing the very busy A96.

Athletes are not allowed to wear headphones of any kind while taking part in the race, and there are no water stations on the race route and no parking facilities close to the race start. Parking is advised in Forres town centre.
