No amendments can be made after 11th February. In the unfortunate event that you have to withdraw from the race please advise the Race Director so that your place can be offered to the next person on the waiting list.

Race numbers and timing chips must be collected on the day at the Assembly Hall within the Scottish Police College from 9.00am.

RACE START POINTS:
Although both races start and finish within the grounds of the Scottish Police College, there are different start points for the 15K and 5K. Please follow directions from the Assembly Hall for your respective race, and be ready to assemble 10 minutes before your start time for your race briefing.

THE COURSES:
The Devilla Forest 15 follows a 'relatively flat' 15KM anti-clockwise loop of Devilla Forest, taking in a mix of forest roads, paths and tracks. The route skirts 3 lochs and goes through a variety of sheltered woodland and open ground. Ground conditions can vary from boggy to hardpacked.

The Devilla Forest 5 follows a similarly flattish 5KM anti-clockwise loop predominately on forest roads around the Moor Loch within Devilla Forest.

Devilla Forest is a working forest and, as such, any work taking place on the race routes may require either or both routes to be amended on race day. Any changes will be notified to entrants as soon as known.

Both routes are predominantly offroad but suitable for ordinary trainers or trail shoes (not suitable for spikes). The courses will be marshalled and arrowed at all junctions. The safety of all is paramount and it is a condition of entry that competitors must follow the instructions of the marshals at all times.

Any runner not reaching the 7K water station within an hour will be timed out and withdrawn from the 15k race.

Dogs are not permitted in either race.

PARKING:
Ample car parking is available within the the grounds of the Scottish Police College. Anyone attending the races ( runners or supporters) must only enter the Scottish Police College by the main entrance and follow the marshalls directions. They should not follow any Sat Nav directions through Devilla Forest as these routes are unsuitable for cars and upsets local residents. 

CHANGING FACILITIES:
Changing, showering and toilet facilities are available at the Recreation Hall. The organisers accept no responsibility for loss of clothing or equipment and it is the responsibility of runners  to make sure they have all their belongings before leaving  the race venue.
