The route is generally flat, with some undulation and a short hill at around 4 miles. It is mostly on country roads. Bear in mind it is not a closed road race and some traffic will be encountered. Keep to the left, and take extra care as you come back into Dunblane and pass Tesco. The route is heavily marshalled. If you do drop out please let a marshal know – First Aid cover is available.

Proceeds of the 2021 race are going to support the work of The Dunblane Centre. The Dunblane Centre offers a welcoming environment and a broad range of activities for communities in and around Dunblane. A local charity, the Centre was gifted to the community and is sustained by donations, grants and local support. It is open to all, with children and young people at our heart.
The Centre has been shut for a considerable time due to COVID-19 restrictions but it has continued to support elderly residents with food hampers. The youth workers have also been working with young people to help support their wellbeing and mental health.
