This multi-terrain race is a tough but scenic half-marathon round the town of Forfar organised by Forfar Road Runners. The race route contains a varied mixture of running surfaces from country park paths, tarmac, pavement, farm tracks, fields and bogs – and a water section which can be knee deep (and ice cold).
