All routes are extensively sign posted and well marshalled. Safety is paramount and we expect runners to follow the advice of marshals all times.

To ensure runner safety the wearing of headphones is strictly prohibited.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.


Extensive parking is available at Winton Castle car park -please follow signs on entering the estate.


Toilet facilities are located in the potting shed and within Winton Castle itself. An unattended bag drop area is available within the cafe area.

The organisers accept no responsibility for loss of personal items. Cafe facilities are available for hot and cold festive snacks.

First aid will be available throughout the event.



The course will be run on private trails within the estate. Sections of the trail will be rough, uneven and portentially muddy so please wear appropriate footware.

The course will follow a circular route approximately 1mile long with a few festive surprizes along the way!

The race starts and finishes at Winton Castle.

All competitors should confirm their safe arrival back at the finishing desk to collect their medal - even if they have not been able to complete the course.
