APPLICATIONS are now open for the inaugural Ayr Classic Run in October this year.

The five-mile run will take place at the iconic Ayr racecourse on Sunday October 6.

The route is designed so that the start and finish line is in front of the famous grandstand, before the course takes two loops of the track itself.

The run will also incorporate a junior run which is 3KM and a family mile run.

The organisers of the event said: “This is an open and flat course, ideal for first time runners and walkers, as well as experienced club runners looking to beat their personal best times.”
