A £100 cheque is also on offer for breaking the course record, the course record currently stands at 58 minutes 38 seconds set by Fiona Lothian in 1998. If more than one runner breaks the course record only one cheque will be presented and this will be to the runner who reduces the course record by the biggest margin.
