In the middle of nowhere (approx 20 minutes outside of Aberdeen…) lies the infamous Glack Hill, shrouded in mystery and guarded by angry looking sheep. Once a year, the gates open and brave adventurers are challenged to take on its brutal trails!

​Glack Trail is about running and leaping around forests, hills and open countryside. Our unique course weaves around stunning wilderness without an inch of tarmac in sight. The timed event is perfect for all – from hardened trail runners to first time adventurers.

The Glack Trail is 8K (and some!). Why eight kilometres? Because we have 8K of awesome trails, which should not be underestimated! We've thoroughly tested the course and we're confident it'll be the longest (and most enjoyable!) eight kilometres you'll ever run.

And the best thing about having a unique trail course is that you can aim for the leader board and the Glack Trail record!

New kids 3K race - The Wee Glack Trail!

We’re excited to launch a new kids race for 6 – 12 year olds. The ‘Wee Glack Trail’ is an awesome roller coaster of a trail run, and at just over 3K is perfect all abilities – from keen club runners to beginners looking for their first adventure run.

The start time is 12.10, which means the wee run takes place after the big run, making for the perfect family day out!
