A new trail event for women who love the outdoors but also appreciate a little pampering is to launch in Perthshire. Women Run Strong on 26 April will be held at Hilton Hotel, Dunkeld, guaranteeing a four star experience for participants.
Four Star Treatment At New Event
The trail begins at the serene Polney Loch and takes you through the beautiful Atholl Wood. The course is a combination of woodland path and open views, with some mud but not too much. For anyone more used to road running this is an ideal introduction to trail running, allowing participants to experience the freedom and sense of adventure, without the anxiety of “where do I go now?” as the trail will be well marked and marshalled. There are 5k and 10k options and everyone is welcome to run, jog or walk.
Organisers say: “Ever come to the end of a great run and felt you want that fantastic feeling to continue for as long as possible? Everyone is sharing their good vibes and then you have to trudge off home alone. It's happened to me and that's why Women Run Strong is different. It's a four star, pampering experience even after the run is done.”
After finishing the run, participants will be greeted with a glass of bubbly, and jelly babies on the banks of the River Tay. They can pamper themselves by checking into the pool for a refreshing swim, taking a dip in the relaxing hot tub or booking a massage. There will be a draw for spot prizes, with your race number is your entry to the draw.
There are only 200 places in the event. The small number of participants will ensure a friendly atmosphere and no jostling and stress at the start. For more information, visit the event website.
