The Stonehaven Half Marathon has a long history which first took place back in 1985 when short shorts were all the rage! The race is limited to 400 runners and as there are no entries on the day you'll have to enter early if you would like to take part. A nice touch is the 1k fun run which is free and those taking part even get a medal!
Some hill training prior to this one will come in handy! There are plenty of hills for the first few miles with a particularly testing one at around the 4 mile mark. The second half of the race is more forgiving as it flattens out giving runners the chance to enjoy the pleasant scenery.
