The Seven Hills of Edinburgh

27 Jun 2021

Organiser's Description

FULL INFORMATION COVERING ALL POINTS, INCLUDING COVID MEASURES, CAN BE READ NOW ON THE EVENT WEBSITE...  www.seven-hills.org.uk  (18/6/21)

 

THE COURSE: Starting from Calton Hill, entrants are to make their way round the 7 hills of Scotland's capital city on foot, a distance of about 14.3 miles, with about 2200 feet of ascent/descent. Competitors have to find their own route, as the course is not marked, but they must pass through the 6 checkpoints in the following order: The Castle (esplanade); Corstorphine Hill; Craiglockhart Hill (East); Braid Hill; Blackford Hill; and Arthur's Seat… with Calton Hill being the Start and Finish point. Competitors must punch their race-number at each checkpoint.

 

The RACE: 10.15 am start. The race is for those of reasonable sporting fitness who want to complete the course at a good pace. (Those who can do a half-marathon in 1 hour 40 or less should probably enter The Race rather than The Challenge.)

  Team Event: The Race includes a Team Event, with 3 or 4 named runners per team… the best 3 places to count. Entry forms will be available near the Registration boards.  (No extra fee.)

 

The CHALLENGE: 9.45 am start. The Challenge is for those who simply wish to complete the course in their own time... running, jogging, perhaps walking some bits. The later checkpoints will be staffed on the basis that competitors will be able to complete the course in no more than 4 hours.
