Organiser's Description

FALKLAND HILL TRAIL RACE - Sunday 19th September 2021 starting at 11.00am

VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION BELOW

Hi Folks,

Great news, we have had permission to hold the Falkland Hill Trail Race.

There are a few more rules to be followed than usual and it is important that you carefully read the guidance set out below.

We apologise that we are unable to provide our usual after race hospitality. As organisers we are simply grateful that the race is able to be held.

Please note there will not be a changing or bag storage area so runners should arrive ready to run.

Brought to you by Falkland Trail Runners

The race is run on trails and paths in the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate and Falkland Hill. We made substantial changes to the traditional route in 2019 to make the race longer than in previous years (up from 2.5 miles to 3.75), the ascent route is much kinder than before and is more runnable. We wanted to broaden the appeal of this iconic race to encourage more runners but still ensure that it is a required event for hill runners. We are satisfied that the course has appeal for a wide range of runners and it is suitable for trail runners and novice hill runners. Rest assured though you will still be running to the top of Falkland Hill!

 

ALL FINISHERS WILL RECEIVE A RACE MEDAL
