Whilst the proprietors of Winton House regularly maintain the tracks and footpaths, runners should come adequately prepared for uneven, grass, gravel or mud surfaces.

All routes are extensively sign posted and well marshalled. Safety is paramount and we expect runners to follow the advice of marshals and the police at all times especially at points where the 10K route crosses the main road.

To ensure runner safety the wearing of headphones is strictly prohibited.

Unfortunately, there will be no bike race this year.

The Course

The 10K is a beautiful cross country route which circles Winton house exclusively through trail and tracks between Pencaitland, Boggs Holdings and Ormiston. The new 10K route involves fewer road sections and road crossings. The start and finish are in front of Winton House.

The 5K runners follow a new route this year, closer to the 3.5K route.
