This is a new trail race, following in the tradition of the former Methlick Fund run. Starting at the village cricket pitch, the 10K route follows the Ythan River west from the village, first through woodland then through open meadow. At just after 4K, the trail climbs out of the valley with fantastic views over the Ythan Gorge and surrounding countryside. The route follows the undulating ridge back along the valley before a quick descent to the valley floor. The return route is back along the valley to the village and the finish line on the cricket pitch. The 3 K junior race starts on the cricket pitch, and is an out-and- back along the valley.
Some great refreshments will be provided for a small donation in the Beaton Hall adjacent to the finishing line. All runners will receive a unique, handcrafted medal. Prizes will be awarded in the Hall at 11:30am.
The route will be clearly marked, with marshals at key points. Race details and booking are on our Webscorer site.

This is a small, friendly, local event, and we look forward to welcoming runners from all over.
