The race starts with a short section of level tarmac, before heading up a scenic narrow winding trail. At the top of the trail there is a tricky burn crossing, before a climb up a steep bank gains you access to the open hillside, covered with rough heather and tussocks. The summit of the hill is set back a further than you’d expect, and once round the trig point, you return the same way. The race is approx. 5.5km with a climb of approx. 380m.
Limited parking is available within the grounds of the primary school.
