Race Information

We hope you will find all the relevant information that you need to participate in the 36th Alloa Round Table Half Marathon.
We have covered all aspects of the race based on FAQ’s that we have received over the years.

If you have any further questions then please contact us via the form on our Contact Page.

Date & Time

The 36th Alloa Round Table Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 3rd June 2018. The race start time is 10:00am and we recommend that all runners give themselves enough time before the start to warm up.

Applications for Entry

Entries for the 2018 event are now CLOSED.


Race Packs & Vest Numbers

Your electronic race pack will be sent out via email at least 1 week before race date. Runners without an email address will have the information posted to them. Please make sure that you check the junk folder in your email software as the electronic race pack can sometimes be detected as spam.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you arrive at the finish with your number intact. Our timing system for the 2018 race uses a disposable chip built into the vest number so it’s very important to look after this when you are running the event.

Race Location & Parking

The race start and finish is the Leisure Bowl, Parkway, Alloa, FK10 2AF where ample changing and toilet facilities are available.
No car parking is available at the race site. You can view all available parking locations (marked in yellow) via the map below:

Road signs will be clearly displayed on all routes directing traffic to the appropriate car park and marshals will be available if you require assistance.


Unsecured baggage storage will be available at the Leisure Bowl as well as a limited number of lockable storage lockers. The race organisers take no responsibility for any items stored at the Leisure Bowl before, during or after the race.

First Aid Support

St. Andrew’s First Aid will be providing the first aid cover throughout the event.

Water Stations & Other Course Support

There are four water stations along the route. The course is well marshalled and has mile markers throughout.


Your personal safety and that of your fellow runners, spectators and helpers must take absolute priority.

  • You must be of sufficient fitness to complete the course in 3 hours and have no known medical conditions. If you’re in any doubt consult your doctor before competing.
  • Do not run with a cold or flu – this can be extremely dangerous. If you are unwell then stop and seek help and if you see another runner in serious distress stop and help and notify the next Marshal or first aider.
  • Always follow the directions of marshals and the police.
  • Eat well and avoid alcohol the night before the event. Eat something light and drink plenty of water throughout the morning of the race.
