Runners and cyclists may have their views about who’s faster, but one Ayrshire race has put that friendly rivalry to the test for decades.‘The Cyclists vs The Harriers’ race, started by Irvine YMCA Harriers and Fullarton Wheelers CC, has been held every Sunday before Christmas since 1959.

The  event, now organised by Irving Running Club, will pit cyclists against runners on a five-mile course on soft ground, starting and finishing at Irvine Sports Club.

The route follows paths around the club and the town, as well as a cross-country section over Irvine Moor. The course also contains lots of obstacles to make the challenge as fair as possible.  

Entry is just £5, but all entrants are asked to get into the festive spirit by also bringing a small, wrapped present worth about £5 for the prize table.
