Eglinton Country Park covers an area of 400 acres, meaning as you complete your race you will have the opportunity to enjoy a mixture of habitats as you pass from parkland path, to riverside walkway, woodland and forest, to loch shore. The course has some small inclines and the terrain is mainly managed pathways in compacted stone.
The meeting point is the open Field, near to the visitor's centre.
On the day
With the onsite visitor's centre and the play park, there is something for all of the family to enjoy, so be sure you bring them along to support you and then enjoy a day out afterwards.
