Health and Safety

Whilst the proprietors of Winton Castle regularly maintain the tracks and footpaths, runners should come adequately prepared for uneven, grass, gravel or mud surfaces. 

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.

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.



The course will be run on private roads within the estate although a small portion could be rough underfoot and portentially muddy. The course will follow a circular 1 mile route which starts and finishes at Winton Castle. For those wishing to run further there is the opportunity to extend the distance by running several laps.

There will be a back runner to ensure all entrants make it back safely, however every competitor 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.
