Course information

The Hopetoun House course takes you through the estate surrounding the stately home, passing through wooded areas and immaculate gardens – you may even see the resident deer and red squirrels. The route is relatively flat and runs mostly on gravel and forestry paths. To finish the route, you will again take in views of the Queensferry Crossing over the Firth of Forth towards Scotland’s capital city.

Meeting point

The meeting point is the grass lawns in front of the picturesque Hopetoun House. You will take in spectacular views of the new Queensferry Crossing bridge, overlooking the capital as you cross the start line to take on your 5k or 10k route.

Event parking is available within the grounds of Hopetoun House. Please take direction from signage and stewards. However, to look after our environment, we encourage you to car share where possible.
