Hop On Down To This Fantastic Summer Trail
Fancy a 10K trail run followed by a cold beer?
If you like great beer and running on amazing riverside trails then Midlothian's Hop Run on 11 June is the perfect event for you!
A 10K trail run with an important twist – the finish line is at Stewart Brewing’s HQ and so beers, music, food and good times are guaranteed after your run.
The race action starts at the historic Rosslyn Chapel (think Da Vinci Code) and the 10K trail run then heads through the beautiful valley of the North Esk River. Runners will pass tumbling waterfalls, still river pools, quiet natural forests and atmospheric ruins of the area’s surprising industrial past, before emerging at Stewart Brewing HQ to celebrate their achievement over a beer (the first one’s on the organisers).
It's not just a beer that runners will be rewarded with though, alongside the beer token entrants will also receive a branded bottle opener and a t-shirt… if you want one. One of the ways that event organiser, Durty Events, is trying to be more 'green' is to cut down on things like t-shirts and using cups at feed stations.
A spokesperson said: "Some of our entrants love a t-shirt and some don’t. So we now give runners the option to donate the cost of their event tee to our run charity, Bright Sparks."
