Muckle-Toon Adventure Festival

The Muckle Toon Adventure Festival is an annual multi-event sports extravanganza. 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 Borderlands.

A new addition to our schedule this year is the November 1st 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.

The spectacular scenery, steeped in legendary Border Reiver history, provides the perfect backdrop for a range of outdoor activites. You will find yourself passing historic monuments bestowed in myth and legend as well as enjoying the vocal support of the local clansmen as you undertake challenges you will be talking about over a pint for years to come. There really is something for everyone!

After the fun of the race join us at the Buccleuch Centre to welcome Dr Andrew Murray - Doctor, runner, author and British record holder, Andrew recounts his many adventures to us in this special talk.

Enjoy some well earned food and perhaps a cheeky drink whilst hearing about Andrew's inspirational adventures across all continents.

Book your tickets here.


Langholm, known colloquially as the "Muckle Toon", is just waiting to be discovered. Steeped in historic tradition and surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in Scotland, it is fast becoming a haven for outdoor enthusiasts looking for something a little different.
