Grim Beaver Halloween Trail Race

30 Oct 16

Grim Beaver Halloween Trail Race

Brought to you by PB Timing - organisers of the Skull Mountain Trail Series, Splash 'n' Dash Beach Race & Benarty Gala Trail Race.

The inaugural Grim Beaver Halloween Trail Race will be held on Sunday 30th October. The race will start at 11.00am

A long time ago Lord Balbirnie introduced a family of North American Beavers to the waterways running through his grand estate (now Balbirnie Park). The beavers appear to have thrived on the estate for many years but then they suddenly disappeared. Rumour has it that local poachers hunted them all down... but beware the Beaver has returned to seek his Revenge!

RACE ROUTE - This two-lap race will be held on traffic-free woodland paths and trails in the lovely surroundings of Balbirnie Park, Markinch. The race distance will be around 4 miles. The surface is a mix of woodland trails and paths which can get muddy in places during wet weather so trail shoes are advisable. We're sure you will be delighted to know that we have incorporated a nice water feature down by Beaver Creek and a few wee undulations along the way!

ALL ENTRANTS will receive one of our LIMITED EDITION RACE MEDALS

Extensive Age Category Awards and loads of Spot Prizes to be won. As well as first 3 overall Male & Female we also have prizes for 1st Male & Female in the following age categories - Under 20, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+

* SPECIAL AWARDS FOR THE BESTEST HALLOWEEN COSTUMES *
