Romans vs Picts 5k and Great Roman Bake Off

PICTS VS ROMANS 5K

Grab your running shoes and prepare for battle at the Antonine Wall! We’re pitting Picts against Romans in an epic race to the finish line in partnership with the Falkirk Community Trust. With facepaint for the Picts and headgear for the Romans, you’ll race around the beautiful grounds and forestry surrounding Callendar House, a mansion and museum which sits alongside the Antonine Wall. We’ll be supplying some accessories, but coming in costume is also highly encouraged.

We’ll be awarding winners for each category in the race, as well as ones for best costumes. Each participant will also walk away with the severed head of their enemies…just kidding! You’ll take home your very own participant medal.

*Please note that this is event is free (suggested donation), but ticketed*

GREAT ROMAN BAKE OFF

For families and friends (and hungry runners), Callendar House will play host to the Great Roman Bake Off. Attendees can indulge in some delicious treats and vote for their favourites at this Roman-themed bake sale. The museum will be open after hours for this mouth-watering event, so you can explore the true stories behind the Antonine Wall and those who built it. No tickets are required for the Great Roman Bake Off.

SCOTLAND IN SIX

The Antonine Wall is one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and this event is part the nation-wide Scotland in Six celebrations on World Heritage Day.

All of the action will be documented on social media throughout the day and you’re invited to join in with #ScotlandinSix.
