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.
Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
The start and finish lines are located in front of Hopetoun House.
