The Milngavie Winter Trail Race

08 Mar 2020

Organiser's Description

The Milngavie Winter Trail Race is the little brother of the Mlngavie Trail Race and is a no-frills challenging race based around the wild and beautiful trails of the West Highland Way and Mugdock Country Park. The race starts and finishes at the Headquarters of the 20th Glasgow (1st Milngavie) Scout Group and takes runners out through some scenic and challenging terrain. 

When - Sunday 8th March 2020

The race is being organised by 20th Glasgow (1st Milngavie) Scout Group and any funds raised from the event will go towards funding our Explorer Scouts summer visit to Kandersteg International Scout Centre in Switzerland

The route will be fully marked and marshalled and finishers will be rewarded with hot soup and rolls at the finish

The race is held over some technical, muddy and, at times, steep trails . The route will be signposted and marshalled but runners remain responsible for their own safety at all times and must ensure that they are appropriately dressed and trained for the event and weather conditions on the day.

Race Distance: Approx 5 miles

In order to keep the entry fee down, the race will not be timed and we will not be handing out finisher medals but there will be prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female along with some spot prizes

The event is open to all runners with a minimum age of 17 years old on the race day.

Race registration will be open from 8:30am on the day of the race and will close 15 minutes before the start. Registration will be at race HQ which is the Scout Hall, 45-49 Main Street, Milngavie, G62 6BX. There will be changing and toilet facilities at Race HQ but no shower or washing facilities. Kit bags can be left at Race HQ which will be occupied throughout the duration of the event but the organisers accept no responsibility for the safety or security of any articles left unattended.
