Ballantyne Cup and Shirley Barton Trophy

10 September 2022

Handicapped 6km races

Miramar Tennis Club, Darlington Road, Miramar

The Ballantyne Cup (men) and Shirley Barton Trophy (women) are the club’s most long-standing and arguably most prestigious Scottish trophies.

The Ballantyne Cup was donated by the founder of the club Walter (Pop) Ballantyne, and his wife to commemorate their son Bob (a club champion), who died of the flu in 1918 following his return from WWI.   

2022 is the centenary of the Ballantyne Cup. To celebrate, we are holding the race on a new 6km course on the flat streets of Miramar. We are meeting at the Miramar Tennis Club at 1:30pm for the handicapped start to the race at 2pm. Afterwards, we will gather for a prizegiving and a cup of tea. The folks at the Miramar Tennis Club recommend Double Vision on the other side of Miramar Park as a good venue to gather afterwards for a drink and snack.
