More than 200 hundred competitors will brave the elements on Sunday (3 February) as they take on the challenging Forfar Multi Terrain half marathon. Organisers, Forfar Road Runners, warn that novice runners need not apply.
The course contains a mixture of running surfaces including country park paths, tarmac, pavement, farm tracks, fields and bogs, and a water section which can often be knee deep (and ice cold). Every runner is required to study and/or carry a map of the course in case of bad weather or directional signs being misplaced. Runners will get a chance to refresh themselves at the bar afterwards which will be open from 12:30pm and organisers have promised a veritable feast for hungry runners and spectators alike.
Participants are advised to carry liquid and food, and have full body cover (including hat, gloves, dry top, and waterproofs). For more information, visit the Forfar Road Runners website.
