***Subject to change***
2 laps of Hampden Park. Approximately measured trail 10km.
The 2019 course will change to reduce the amount of 2 way sections, to make the route flow better and easier to follow.
We are currently thinking about the best way to mark up the course for 2019, as a number of direction arrows were stolen or turned round within half an hour of us putting them up in 2018!! This meant we had to use some spray marking, and an additional issue to this was not all the markings were ours!! You will be pleased to know any spray we use is environmentally friendly and chalk based, and we returned midweek to remove our markings.

Why are you using Active Network? With an increasing number of events and entrants, our current in house solution was inflexible and taking too much time to administer. It is now a lot simpler for us to provide a secure entry experience. The downside is the administration fee, however we feel this is a small cost for a seamless entry experience, peace of mind and security.
