Scurry along the Esk 15 mile and 10 mile trail runs 2019

18 May 2019

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the first Scurry along the Esk 15 mile and 10 mile trails runs.

The runs will be clearly marked and marshalled off road routes for everyone to enjoy.

The 10 mile route is a fast and relatively flat Scurry from the start up from Roslin Glen Country Park along the beautiful Esk to Penicuik and back with the 15 mile route adding in a scenic and more adventurous undulating 5 mile trail within the Penicuik estate.

Registration will be in the Roslin Glen Country Park. Both 10 mile and 15 mile entrants will need to leave time to walk 10mins to the start line on the Esk Way after the pillars on the sharp bend in the Roslin glen road.

A contribution from the trail runs will go towards supporting the Friends of Roslin Glen.

Active Root will be providing a post race drink and all competitors will receive a race memento. More information on prizes and sponsorship will follow in our pre race information and on social media.

We will look forward to seeing you there.
