Held at Glentress in the Tweed Valley Forest Park â€“ this half marathon will be punishing, as you will be climbing steeply into the hills and on biking tracks (which will be closed for the event). See website for more details.
This is the third year for this activity festival based in the Borders town of Langholm. There’s trail running and mountain biking in the Southern Uplands around the town, road racing on the quiet B roads, and a bit of geocaching to keep the kids occupied. Camp for the weekend, hang out at the Basecamp with Andy Kirkpatrick and enjoy the food and drink from local suppliers. See the website for more details.
As part of the John Muir Festival weekend â€“ this 50k ultra marathon is the first in East Lothian, and takes place along the scenic coastline, with the finish at Foxlake Adventures, near Dunbar. Run the whole thing or as a relay team running 25k each.
Choose from a 10k, 5k or 3.5k family run in and around the glorious Pencaitland countryside. Formerly the Pencaitland Fun Run, now held at Winton House, all proceeds go to Marie Curie and other local charities. Prices vary and there are discounts for early bookings. See website for full details.
