The course starts in front of the grand Callendar House, a 19th-century chateau and medieval tower. The route then passes by Callendar lake where you might spot some of the parks resident swans. You then enter the steeper section of the route, meandering through Callendar woods before popping back into Callendar park passing by the golf course and the childrens play park.
The meeting point and start line is within the ground of Callendar House. The start can be easily accessible by the Callendar Road entrance to the park or by the car park in Callendar Business Park.
There is parking available in the Callendar Business Park on Callendar Boulevarde. Please do not attempt to park in the residential car parks on Seaton Place as this road will be closed to participants and spectators. However, to look after our environment, we encourage you to car share or take public transport where possible. The start is approximately a 25 minute walk from the city centre, Falkirk Grahamston train station and Falkirk High train station. There are a number of bus services that stop just a short walk from Callendar Park. Please use the Traveline Scotland website to plan your journey.
Unfortunately, due to the majority of the course being on steep forestry and gravel paths, this event is unsuitable for wheelchair users.
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. There are many points around the course, within walking distance from the start and finish lines, that they will be able to see you run past to cheer you on.
