The race is run on trails and paths in the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate and Falkland Hill. We made substantial changes to the traditional route last year to make the race longer than in previous years (up from 2.5 miles to 3.75), the ascent route is much kinder than before and is more runnable.
We wanted to broaden the appeal of this iconic race to encourage more runners but still ensure that it is a required event for hill runners. We are satisfied that the course has appeal for a wide range of runners and it is suitable for trail runners and novice hill runners. Rest assured though you will still be running to the top of Falkland Hill!
Feedback from the runners was universally positive last year and so we will continue to use the 'new' route.
