Organiser's Description

*** CANCELLED ***

Due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to make the decision to cancel the 2018 running of The Dirty Weekend.
 
Please accept our heartfelt apology for this. We fully appreciate how disappointing this decision will be for many of you.
 
We will provide full refunds for everyone who signed up. These will be processed through Entry Central over the next few days.
 
This cancellation is an unfortunate one off and will not affect any other forthcoming Falkland Trail Runners events. Our next scheduled event is the Tufty Trail Race on Sunday the 23rd of September. Entries are available for this race via Entry Central.
 
Best regards,

The Dirty Weekend has three races. Each is very different and has its unique set of challenges! We will be incorporating all of the usual 'Attractions' associated with Psycho Squirrel Races including old favourites such as the Tunnel of Love plus new features used last year for the first time - the Maiden’s Moisty Dell and Batty Badgers.

There will be plenty of opportunity to get dirty during The Dirty Weekend, and you WILL get wet

As well as the races, we will have a FREE BARBEQUE ON SATURDAY plus other events that will be announced nearer the time.

 

RACE DETAILS

The Dirty Weekend is a Series of trail races held over three consecutive days. On Friday, the start is at 7:30pm, giving plenty of time to get to Falkland from work. The Saturday the race starts at 6.30pm leaving you time for all the usual boring stuff during the day! On Sunday the race starts at 2:30pm.

Each of the three races will follow a different route on trails and paths within the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate. Exact distances for each race are set out in the event brochure but are between approx. 5 & 6 miles.  

RACE 1 - Friday at 7.30pm - The Dusky Maiden Chase

RACE 2 - Saturday at 6.30pm – Tufty’s Revenge followed by the Runners Barbeque

RACE 3 - Sunday at 2:30pm – The Blue Brae Polka

Times and finishing positions will be recorded at each individual race. Competitors’ individual race times are added together to determine the overall series and age group winners. Entrants do not have to start / finish every race, but only those completing all three events will be eligible for awards. There will be an extensive list of overall and age category awards. PLEASE NOTE: All awards are based on the aggregate time for all three races. There are no individual race awards.
