The Cambus Quarter

25 Aug 2024

Organiser's Description


The race is run over a 6.5 mile mixed terrain course. The route is NOT closed to traffic during the race but marshals will be at any significant road crossings and the railway level crossing. You must comply with all instructions from marshals or you risk being disqualified.

The race starts in Cambus village and does an anti-clockwise loop along the trail banks of the river forth around farmland before returning to the start on tarmac path where you will again pass through the village. There will be a water station with biodegradable cups available at this point. The route continues on a clockwise loop past Cambus Pools Nature Reserve, through Blackgrange, past Diageo and across the level crossing before heading back to the finish line along the old A907 and Cambus Cycle Path. The route is flat and a mixture of road and trail (road shoes would probably be best suited unless it's been really wet).

Please remember the route is not closed to the public and we do not have right of way, so please be courteous and sensible when passing members of the public and DO NOT drop any litter on the route.
