A challenging route with ample rewards! A little more than “undulating” but worth every step, this is off-road running at its best.
Route Description/Find Out more
Leaving Basecamp the route heads towards the town centre where bagpipes meet the runners as they tackle the first sharp climb of the day. Continue through the streets before exiting onto beautiful hillside above the river Esk. Circumnavigate the “Roon Hoose” and make the most of the descent before tackling the next lung-busting climb of the day.
While the route does include three drink stations, we do recommend that runners carry fluids and energy supplies as the demands of the course do not let up until you cross the finish line. The route is way-marked and marshalled throughout and first aid is provided by the exceptional guys and gals of the Moffat Mountain Rescue Team.
