Bristow 15 Mile Trail Race
- Price £29 (£27 for Scottish Athletics Members)
- 13:00 on Sunday 28 April 2024
An epic 15 miles of Highland scenery. There is something special about this event! You start in view of Balmoral Castle and run out west adjacent the magnificent river Dee before beginning a gradual climb through the Ballochbuie pine forest. Then at mile 8, you leave the river and begin a climb to the base of Lochnagar, an ascent of about 120 meters. The last 3 miles are a rush as you hurtle down towards the Castle once again; but beware…there is a sting in the tail!

The races are running races, not walking events.
Anyone taking over 3 hours to complete the 15 Mile event, may be allowed to start early at the organisers discretion so the marshals are not left out on the course longer than can be helped.
It is expected that runners will finish within a reasonable time for each race to allow for the next race to take place and for us to gather in marshals from exposed locations.
5K – maximum finish time 1 hour
10K – Maximum finish time 2 hours
Duathlon – Maximum finish time 3 hours
15 Mile – Maximum finish time 3.5 hours there will be no early starts
Please note these times are given as a guide only and it may on the day be necessary to clear the course earlier than expected.
Marshals will do their utmost to allow an athlete to complete the race as long as it is safe for the individual to continue. However it must be noted that past the maximum times above if it is still possible to allow an athlete to continue, marshals will be removed from the course for their own safely / comfort and the athlete will be continuing in the full knowledge that this is the case. The athlete accepts this responsibility as part of the main terms and conditions signed up to on entering the event.
