Cairngorm Trail Running Weekend

The Cairngorms in Scotland is unique - a stunning landscape and a natural environment unlike any other in the UK. And it provides the location for a unique running event – the Cairngorm Trail Running Gathering.
Two days in October offering  a range of runs together with sessions on trail running techniques, trail navigation, nutrition, gym advice and trail equipment. Get the confidence to keep running long into the winter nights. Residential and non-residential options available.

If you are a 5km – 15km runner, keen to learn more then you’ll build your confidence to go off road and into new territory. For the developing endurance trail runner, there will be a variety of trail run options of a longer distance.
Either way, you’ll spend the weekend with a community of like-minded people who enjoy running at their own pace, eating cake, enjoy a run or three, gain confidence and leave with technical advice to help you reach your targets.
An easy journey from any major UK airport will open up the Cairngorms, Scotland’s growing centre of trail running.  Home to incredible trails of all lengths and abilities. Forested trails, rugged tracks, hilly ridges and everything in-between.
Schedule the weekend in to fit around your trail running goals for 2020 and leave us keen to keep running long into the dark winter nights.
