Muckle-Toon Adventure Festival

Following huge success in 2015, the Muckle Toon Adventure Festival will return by popular demand, taking place in June 2016. Just 20 minutes from the M6 you could find yourself cycling, running, walking and mountain biking through the stunning hills of Langholm, in the Scottish Borders.

Before that we've got a devilish delight in store for you at the 31st Oct Pumpkin Run. Don the head torch, fancy dress and set off at dusk for an evening of tough Halloween adventure in and around the Muckle Toon.

Dodging the ghosts and ghouls en-route won't be the only challenge of your evening. Tackling the rough and rocky 6 mile(ish) route will be a real test of strength, stamina and's amazing how tough a run can be when the lights go out! So its head down and grit your teeth for a night race like no other.
