Organiser's Description

The Gin Run

Step away from the FitBit - it’s not that kind of run! Gather like minded friends and assemble for a run like no other. This Autumn, we have teamed up with four brilliant Scottish distilleries to bring you THE GIN RUN.

Forget about timing chips and PBs - this is a sociable run with delicious gin serves to be enjoyed at each 1k marker.

Walk, Jog, or Run the route – it’s you up to! Sign up for this fun 5k with friends.

Every entrant will receive a goody bag and a gin cocktail at the end of the race and there's no need to dash off afterwards - we will have a DJ and pizzas from Big Blu in our courtyard plus all of the gin distillers will be there to chat about their gin!

Where: Archerfield Walled Garden 

When: Saturday 26th October. Run starts at 2pm


Online registration - £25 per person (available until 24th October)

Please note: sign ups after midday on Wednesday (23rd October) - bibs will need to be collected from Archerfield Walled Garden ahead of the event.

On the day registration - £30 per person. On the day registration will be open 12-1pm. (We strongly recommend booking in advance. Places are limited so if the event sells out in advance, on the day registration will be cancelled.)

Registation includes:

  • Marshalled and marked 5k route
  • 4 gin tasters/perfect pours along the route
  • A gin cocktail at the finish line
  • Entertainment along the way
  • Goodie bag
  • Postal registration
  • Water stations along the way

Please note, this is a fun run and we will not be using timing technology, giving out medals or awarding prizes for first place. Instead, you'll enjoy gin tasters and live music along the way, plus a DJ, a gin cocktail and an epic goodie bag when you come over the finish line to celebrate completing your first ever Scottish Gin Run!

Strictly 18 years and over.  Please bring ID if required.

The Ambulance Service will be on site should you have any medical concerns and our staff and marshals around the course will be able to help you if you need support.

You will be running on some uneven surfaces, for example on the tracks through the woods. Runners should come adequately prepared for uneven, gravel or mud surfaces. 

All routes are extensively sign posted and well marshalled. Safety is paramount and we expect runners to follow the advice of marshals at all times especially at points where runners are on public roads.

To ensure runner safety, the wearing of earphones is not recommended.


For safety reason dogs are not permitted on this run. (They don't like gin anyway)
