Route 1 (7.5 km) ‘Cairn Table’: Straight to the top of Cairn Table and back down by the same route. Intended as a taster for those that haven’t tried a hill run before.

Route 2 (7.5 km) ‘The Sanquhar Trail Run’: A trail run along the Muirkirk to Sanquhar Right of Way. For beginners that don’t fancy a hill run but would quite like to run slightly uphill along a reasonably good surfaced trail.

To enter simply drop an email to Bill Ion ( or just turn up on the day. Entry is available to both club (£1) and non-club (£2) members.

Important Information for Route 1  The races follow an unmarked course that crosses ground above 1500 feet.  Full body cover (including full length leg cover rather than knee length tights and also hat and gloves) must either be carried or worn. If required to do so on the day, due to adverse weather conditions, you must carry full waterproof body cover (the jacket must have a hood), a whistle and a compass. Please come prepared.
