Welcome to the Glen Tay Block Race Website.
If you are joining us again, welcome back. If you are planning to run with us for the first time, we hope you will join us.
The Glen Tay Block Race is a unique small-town race that was first run in 1907! The race course is a 14.7 km loop that starts and ends at the Perth Museum in downtown Perth. The race, which has been held continuously since its reinstatement in 1967, starts at 6 pm on the last Thursday of August and attracts runners from Kingston to Ottawa.
Spend the day visiting Heritage Perth and cap it off with a classic road race!
