The Course & Points of interest


Not for the faint-hearted, this challenging 7km course with approximately 190m elevation, is perfect for those looking to step up their training for a longer distance with Stirling’s trails and hills providing the ideal test of the legs. Starting in Kings Park, runners will complete an off-road lap of Stirling Golf Club before crossing Raploch Road and taking on the trails climbing up the side of Stirling Castle where you reach the summit for magnificent views of Central Scotland. Runners will then tackle Gowan Hill before making their way back towards Kings Park for a sprint finish into the event village.
