The climbing wall is part of the fringe events

Event Village

Take time to visit the Event Village area where we have some exciting new exhibitors and activities this year.

Outdoor Discovery present their climbing wall, bungie run and superjumper! Purchase your wrist band on the day to access the new exciting activities - all income from wrist band sales goes to our nominated charities. That’s got to be a good deal!

The train is also back for all those young at heart, jump on at the Braemar station.

The Castleton Dancers will be performing in the arena and there will be a chance to toss the caber (foam not wood!) with the team from Braemar Junior Highland Games. Grampian Fire Brigade will be on hand to show you around their fire tender and pass on some useful fire prevention tips.

Try out the Street Sports arena with help from the Aberdeenshire Council sports coaches.

After all that activity you will need to re-fuel so we have a number of catering providers to choose from on the event field or you can make use of the coffee shop back at the Castle.

Country Flavours of Alford will also be providing a range of catering services during the weekend activities.

RunBalmoral have teamed up with who take photographs of competitors on the course and at the finish.

The photos are available online within 72 hours of the event to every entrant as exclusive photo products. Plus every competitor will be able to download for FREE their Event Certificate.
