Aberfoyle Trail Half Marathon

New Autumn Trail Race For Perthshire

There's a brand new trail race making its way to Perthshire this October...

A brand new trail race is joining the autumn race calendar in 2023, with entries recently opening for the Aberfoyle Trail Half Marathon. The Perthshire event will join race organiser, Outsider Events, exciting portfolio of events which also includes the popular Blair Castle Trail Weekender.

Scheduled for 14 October, the inaugural race will take in some of the best trails around the Aberfoyle area - setting off from the town centre and venturing into the forest for 21K of stunning and challenging trails. The route takes in about 97% off-road tracks, with a mix of meandering fire-track, single track trails along the loch side and epic views of the mountains.

Speaking about the new race, organisers said: "We are delighted that entries are now open the first edition of The Aberfoyle Trail Half Marathon in October - are you up for the challenge?"

Outsider Events is an Edinburgh-based events company, creating events and outdoor experiences that the organisers themselves would like to attend. They say: We believe there's so much more to an event than pinning on a number, giving it hell for leather (though there are definitely times for this) and heading home.

"We aim to look beyond the finish line and incorporate an innovative approach to our event management that includes not only the racer but spectators, friends and family too."

The new race certainly sounds like it holds true to all these values so if you'd like to know more, visit the Aberfoyle Trail Half Marathon website.
