Glen Tay Block Race

The Glen Tay Block Race is held on the last Thursday in August.
We are sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion, Perth-Upon-Tay Branch 244.

Congratulations to all participants!! That was a hot one!!

Results are posted on…you guessed it…the Results page.
Photos are posted, too.

To the 52 runners who stuck it out and chose to run our little race, thank you. To the 7 who registered but decided against running in this heat…we can’t blame you. It was so nice to see the Glen Tay Block Race back in action. And what fast times! Despite the heat, you guys posted some amazing times. Well done!

And, a big thank you to our volunteers who made it all happen.


Read all about this classic late-summer running race. First run in 1907 and revived in 1967 as a Centennial project, this race has a fascinating history.
