The ‘KB5’ road race is held every year by Edinburgh University Hare & Hounds. The race starts and finishes inside the Kings Buildings Science and Engineering Campus, on West Mains Road. The course consists of a 5 mile road loop, with quite a few hills, though none of them steep. All participants must be 17 years old or over on the day of the race.
A third of all proceeds from the race will go to charity – we are very pleased to announce that, we’ll be supporting SNAC (Scottish Network for Arthritis in Children) this year.
