RACE ROUTE DESCRIPTION

The Chilly Willy Halloween Trail Race is a two lap race. The total distance is approx. 4.8 miles and the race is held on the trails and woodland paths within the beautiful surroundings of Lochore Meadows Country Park.  

The race starts on the wide grass area near the old steam train and heads towards the Willie Clarke Centre before looping back towards the start area. The route then takes you into the woods and onto a variety of twisty trails and paths. This section of the route will be muddy in places so we would recommend wearing trail shoes. At the far end of the woods you emerge onto a short road section before picking up the main trail along the northern edge of the loch and head past the Willie Clarke Centre to where the race started before doing it all again! After completing your second lap you will be directed to the finish line situated on the grass area near the old steam train.

BLING!
