Organiser's Description

FALKLAND HILL TRAIL RACE - Saturday 18th June 2022 starting at 2.00pm

UPDATE - *** THE HILL RACE IS STILL ON*** 

It is only the Village Festival which has been cancelled.

The Falkland Hill Race will be run as part of the Falkland Gala day and will start and finish at the main gala arena in the Tyndal Bruce Park.

The Gala will have a pipe band, various events, a bar, food outlets etc.

LOCATION:

There is a change to the start and finish area compared to previous years. The Start and finish will be in the Tyndal Bruce Park which is situated off the A912 a few hundred metres North of Falkland Village Centre. The postcode is KY15 7BY.

PARKING:

There will be parking available on the Gala Field and there is parking at the Falkland Memorial Hall and also at the new car-park adjacent to Pillars of Hercules. (both of these are just a 10 minute jog from the race start) Please be aware that the village is likely to be very busy, so car-share where possible and park with consideration at all times.

ROUTE:

Due to the change of the Start/Finish location the race route will be longer than in recent years. The total length is now just under 6 miles. The main part of the route on and around Falkland Hill is unchanged but the start and finish are different. A route map can be found at: Hill Race Route 2022

The route takes in the summit of Falkland Hill and the overall ascent is over 400m. There are some very steep sections both uphill and downhill. In wet conditions great care should be taken. The route is well marshalled and route finding is not difficult.

TOILETS:

Public toilets are available in the Gala Field itself and there are also public toilets in the village adjacent to the Falkland Community Hall. All attendees must use the hand sanitiser located at the toilets before entering and after exiting the toilets.

WATER:

The race organiser is unable to provide any water or drinks. Entrants must bring their own hydration/nutrition.

REGISTRATION:

Number can be collected from the Falkland Trail Runners Gazebo based in the event field. Numbers can be collected from 12:00pm on the day of the race. Please pin this to the front of your race vest/t-shirt. Medical details and emergency contacts must be filled in on the back of the race number before the race. DO NOT PASS YOUR NUMBER TO ANYONE ELSE.  Anyone running using a number not allocated to them will be disqualified and banned from entering future races.
