Organiser's Description

Welcome to the entry pages for the Blair Castle Trail Weekender

Outsider Events are excited to welcome the inaugural Blair Castle Trail Weekender on the 5th & 6th of June 2021. 

Staged in the grounds of the iconic Blair Atholl Castle and Estate, this brand new event has trail races from 5km right up to the 58km Full Tilt Ultra. 

All respective races start at the event village before runners make their way past the front of the castle and into the forest of Dianas Grove, which features spectacularly large trees - including the tallest Japanese Larch and Red Fir in the UK. 

Frome here on out, depending on your choice of race, runners either loop round past Hercules Garden and back toward the event village, fork off up the winding trails of the picturesque Glen Tilt or head toward the 1009m high summit of Ben Dearg. What trail will you take?

What else is on offer with my entry? 

We believe there's so much more to a race than just the run its self. With this in mind, we have a range of activities which comes inclusive with your entry. This extends to friends and family who are with you - even if they're not running. 

Expect to see pre and post race Yoga classes, access to a mix of catering experiences, a bar area, post race hot meal and live music on the Saturday night

A true beast a race, the Full Tilt Ultra takes in the two Munro summits of Ben Dearg (1009m) and Carn a Chlamain (963m). Combined with the charming beauty of Glen Tilt which follows the River Tilt and its plenty waterfalls and alluring pools along the way - the Full Tilt Ultra is a true stunner.

At the finish, recieve an extremely well earned hot meal and take part in a complementory lead Yoga session to help aid post run recovery. 

Due to the demanding elevation and terrain, this race is not for the faint hearted and runners should be of an experienced standard and aware of the risks associated with such a challenge.

10.30 Saturday 05th June 2021

The Dearg Up n' Doon takes quite a step up from the 2 shorter race options.

Following the exposed trail back down the mountainside, the route eventually rejoins the vast forests of Blairduachdar before snaking it's way through the dense pine, larch and birch woods and back to to the finish.

Like the 5km, the Hercules Garden 10km route follows the same trail through the forest of Dianas Grove. 

Instead of returing back to the event village, runners will fork off through the Blairuachdair woods and follow the path into the fringes of Glen Tilt - just enough to get a flavour of its raw, remote beauty. 

After entering the Glen, the route returns back toward the finish - shadowing the the river Tilt before entering the event village and finishing area.
