Bike

Starting at Miltonduff Hall on the edge of Elgin, this 51km route explores some of the quieter roads around Mosstowie, Pluscarden, Dallas and Kellas. The ride has been designed to be challenging yet enjoyable with a mix of climbs, descents and nice, long flat(ish) sections.

  • A roadworthy bike (mountain bikes and hybrids are acceptable, sorry no e-bike these times will not be valid)
  • A recognised cycle helmet.

Run

5 miles: Coopers Park, Elgin, Sunday 5th June 1pm

With the River Lossie close by, this route will take you past, over and under several bridges historic and modern that provide links over the river. Starting as a fairly flat section in Elgin’s Cooper Park, heading in an easterly direction past Elgin Cathedral and over the Landshut Bridge, returning to the park before heading westerly via the new cycle path, around Morriston Playing Fields, out at Oldmills, climbing up Jock Inksons Brae and on to Sherrifmill Bridge, returning back down to Oldmills, turning left and gentle climb to the Bow Brig, along to Elgin Academy then down into Morriston before returning along the cycle path to finish at Cooper Park.
