Glentress February Trail Races 2024

Information and registration

18 February 2024

                       "Spectacular Trail Running in the Beautiful Scottish Borders"

Please Note: Entries close Monday 11th February. There will be no further entries available after this date.

Glentress Forest is described as the 'Gateway to the Tweed Valley Forest Park'. Perhaps more renowned for its mountain biking, Glentress also offers a superb array of forest trails, making it a fantastic location for trail running. The area features mile upon mile of waymarked trails including forest walks, woodland singletrack and heather clad moorland. A great way to explore all the unique aspects of this stunning forest.

With a choice of three distances there’s something for everyone. This year all three races: the 10k, 21k Half Marathon and Glentress 42k Trail Marathon will take place on the Sunday.

Event Briefing Notes will be available to download on the event website approx. five days prior to the event. Please take the time to read these as there will generally be no further information emailed to participants prior to the event.

Race Numbers are to be collected at registration. These are NOT posted out prior to the event.

Glentress 10k Trail Race               Start Time: 1100 (TBC)

This will be ideal if you are looking to get into trail running & a great way to explore all the unique aspects of the forest without the more testing climbs. However, with 390m of ascent it’s still a challenging course…not forgetting the exhilarating descent to the finish.

Glentress 21k Trail Half Marathon        Start Time: 1000 (TBC)

The 21k distance will be exploring further into the more remote parts of the forest. This route will incorporate sections of the Tower Trail and the Black graded MTB route, climbing high to the top of Glentress Forest, offering some stunning panoramic viewpoints. Featuring a fantastic variety of terrain from hard packed gravel trails to twisting forest singletrack and with 900m of ascent, this amazing course offers something for everyone.

“Absolutely loved this race today! One of my favourites, despite the tough hill climbs! Will be doing it again next year” Chris Devine

“Thank you to all those involved in making this event take place. I ran the half and hubby ran the 10k. Great races which we both enjoyed, a wee bit hilly in places but fun all the same” Joanne Corris

Glentress Trail Marathon                    Start Time: 0900 (TBC)

This challenging 42km route comprises two circuits of the 21km course giving 1,800m of ascent. Returning through the finish line after the first circuit this is ideal for family & friends to come along and spectate.

"Totally brilliant race guys - really enjoyed it. The course was fantastic - challenging & varied. A lovely day and great marshals topped it all off! Will be back.... Loved it" David Alexander
