Quotes from last year's runners: Thank you for a great race. I think that’s the best, most enjoyable race course I’ve ever run. 👍😀 Cakes and soup were pretty good too. 😋
Fantastic route which had everything that you want from a trail race! Fantastic soup and cakes at the finish too! When can I sign up for next year?!?
Fab route, really well marked and marshalled, and lovely soup and cakes at end.
Great organisation. Good having an early start, helped reduce any bottlenecks. This was a fantastic event and I loved it!
Lomond Hill Runners bring you a popular and tough trail race that sold out last year. The race will test all your muscles and skills, and get your running year of to a great start. The route links up many of the best trails in the favourite runners' destination of Falkland Estate. It has two long steady climbs, and a decisive sharp finishing climb close to the finish, exhilarating descents and a superb mixture of gravel, rooted trail and forest track, so good grippy trail shoes are a must.
A route map and gpx file can be found on the races section of the Lomies website and a recce is recommended.
£3 of the entry fee goes to Falkland Estate to support the maintenance and development of their excellent trail network that we all enjoy using, and we are also using chip timing for this event.
If the race cannot take place on the date scheduled for reasons outwith our control, we will reschedule the event and carry your entry forward to the revised date.
All entries are non-refundable.
There is parking within various locations around the village of Falkland but you must not park at the Duck Pond or on the roads leading to it, as we would overwhelm the area and lose local goodwill that we need to hold an event like this. So please be fair and park in the village where registration and post race refreshments takes place, and take the 10 minute warm up walk into the estate and start line.
REGISTRATION is from 9am for an 11am start, and location will be confirmed closer to race day.
Toilets at registration, please arrive ready for the race, but you will be able to leave a bag at the start/finish timing gazebo. The Organisers accept no responsibility for loss of clothing or equipment.
It wouldn't be a Lomie event without our welcome post race vegetarian/vegan hot soup, water, hot drinks and snacks which will be back at registration.
Generous money and booze prizes will be for Senior 1st, 2nd and 3rd, first V40, V50, V60+, as well as up to 10 random spot prizes for placings depending on numbers on the day eg. 25th, 40th, 100th places etc.
Early Start Option: this worked very well last year when around 30 runners started 20 minutes before the main race, if you feel it will be a long race for you. Please let the organiser know via email if you want this option as it is more awkward to organise on the day.
Transfers up to 5 days before race day, requiring Name, DOB, address, next of kin name and number.
For each sign-up, the organiser pays the Service Fee of 4% (min 50p). You pay no surcharge
