Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay


The Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay is a 43k relay race with 1,733m of ascent, run in 4 stages starting and finishing in Comrie village. The race follows a route up and around the hills on either side of beautiful Glen Lednock. There are Legs to suit everyone: Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races. Leg 1 is fully marked and leg 4 is partially marked. We will also be marking a small section of Leg 3 (across the featureless moor prior to CP6) to reduce risk of lost runners.

New for 2024:

  • electronic timing and checkpoint control via SportsIdent

  • capacity increased to 50 teams

  • no limit on teams per club

  • shuttle bus between handover points in Glen Lednock to reduce use of cars

  • Post-race curry, soups and home-baking

Big thanks to our sponsors and the local landowners for their support and cooperation without which the race wouldn't work.

The race is dedicated to the memory of our friend and fellow Harrier Simon Wake who died aged 47 in October 2008 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. All proceeds from the race are donated to NHS Tayside Health Fund and ring-fenced to help the fight against this terrible disease.
