**************MTAF 2020 UPDATE***************
Hey Folks

As you may be aware the Muckle Toon Adventure Festival is brought to you by a hard working team of volunteers who have taken time out of their busy lives to bring together an amazing multi-day event for all ages and abilities over the past seven years.

Despite continued huge enthusiasm for the event, due to unforeseen circumstances the committee are unable to meet the demands of this year’s event and are therefore cancelling MTAF 2020 in its current format.

We understand this is disappointing but do not fear, the committee instead will be putting their efforts into delivering the best trail half marathon and 10K in Scotland on Saturday 20th June 2020*!

We hope you will continue to support this valued and much loved community owned event in the future.
MTAF Committee

* All entrants to MTAF trail half marathon and 10K will receive an email offering full refund or automatic entry to the ongoing trail half marathon/10K on the same day at 11am. All other entrants to all events will be automatically refunded within the next 7 days..

Well done for what the team achieved, all the very best for future plans.

Sorry to hear this. Was such a great weekend but also a huge undertaking. Enjoyed the trail races n the summit challenge over the last few years. Amazing that u r still able to put on the trail races....hope many participate n make the day as fun as ever!!!

A tough but no doubt hard thought and brave decision by you all. Good on you for making it, and for everything you've achieved in helping put Langhom *FIRMLY* on the map for lovers of the great outdoors. Best of luck with the MTAF-Lite this year, we're right behind you all the way folks (y)

Aw that's sad, mtb event was brilliant, hope it comes back next year 🤞🤞

Fab event which we’ve really enjoyed but the past. Will still try and support when we can 👍

Was looking forward to this. It's a great weekend.

Absolutely gutted for all involved everyone does such an amazing job! X

A phenomenal amount of hard work to get the festival up and running in the first place not to mention keeping that up for 7 years - well done to all x

Typical just when a get my back sorted

Can anything be done to support the committee in the future? MTAF was great for the Muckle Toon.

Pity... MTB was a good hard well organised run.

Sorry to hear this. Was a great weekend.

Shame but with good reason I’m sure.

Oh dear 😢 Lynne Scott Richard Scott
