Organiser's Description

Auchterarder 10K Chilly Chilli Trail Race.

1st - 31st December 2020


Welcome to the ‘CHILLY’ CHILLI 10K Trail Race, part of the Auchterarder Running Festive.  An event organised by Auchterarder based running club Five Star Active ( 

Last year saw us host the first ever Chilli 10K Trail Race and it was a rip-roaring success.  We were hopeful that we could bring you our favourite trail back for 2020 but sadly our hopes have been dashed by COVID-19. That left us with just too many restrictions and uncertainty for us to be able to stage a ‘normal’ race. That’s disappointing right? But we had a cunning plan, lets not let 2020 win completely, lets get creative and at least win the month of December!!

So, what’s our plan?  We want you to enjoy our chilli trail in all it’s glory. We want you to visit Auchterarder and enjoy the route.  We’ll send you detailed directions, give you a GPX file (you can upload that onto many running watches) and we’ll even mark out the route for the full month of December so you can’t go wrong!  You can walk/run the race at a time that suits you, on a day of your choosing any time from 1st December through to 31st December.  NOTE: If for any reason you cannot travel to Auchterarder to complete the route do not fret, the alternative for you in order to claim your Chilly Chilli medal and snood is to complete a 10k trail local to you and submit evidence.

Once completed just input your time along with your work out evidence (a link to Strava or Garmin is a popular way of doing this) to our timing website and you’ll be added to our live race leader board! (We’ll send you instructions on how to do this after you sign up)

At the end of the month we’ll analyse and publish all the results (including making sure you have run the full route & distance!) and there will be prizes for the top 3 female and male times!!

Most importantly!! For everyone participating we’ll send you out a not to be missed Chilly Chilli 10K Trail Race Medal and Race Snood!! And you know what, we love our race swag so we can assure you will too!! P.S. Make sure you enter your name, address and postcode correct when you are signing up!

You can join us on our Facebook page to get all the latest news, race info, results and festive motivation at

Sorry but no refunds, transfers or deferrals are available under any circumstances.

Important - this race is unsupported and with the course likely to be a little wet in places (it is Scotland in December, where isn’t?), be careful as you go! If you're not bothered by your time please make sure you stop and take plenty of pictures en route - some views are breath-taking.  If you are going to run in a group, please ensure you respect the current rules and restrictions in relation to social distancing.

Race Route - So, what makes the Chilly Chilli Trail Race so darn hot?? A closer look at the GPS map of the route lends a big clue, it's the distinctive shape of a Chilli Pepper!! Starting out in the town of Auchterarder the route pierces into the foothills of the Ochil Hills, with a variety of surfaces, views to die for, forest trails, steady uphill’s and exhilarating downhills and even a couple of stream crossings we think our Chilli Route has it all. Come see for yourself and experience the 'hottest trail route on the planet!!

Fancy another exciting challenge in December to finish 2020 the right way?......why not check out our other Auchterarder Running Festive event, a monthly mileage target for December (50miles, 100miles or 150miles).  We’ve even put on a kids only "get moving" challenge!
