Women Run Strong Returns

Women Run StrongAfter the success of its inaugural event in April, Women Run Strong is back! The women-only trail event returns to Dunkeld on 3 October.

The race is aimed at women who love the outdoors but also enjoy some treats and relaxation after the run. With the race headquarters at Hilton Hotel, a four-star experience is guaranteed.
The trail begins at the serene Polney Loch and takes you through the beautiful Atholl Woods. The course features a combination of woodland path and open views –  some mud but not too much. For anyone more used to running on roads, this is an ideal introduction to trail running. You experience the freedom and sense of adventure, without the anxiety of “where do I go now?” The trail will be well-marked and well marshalled, you won't get lost. There are 6k and 11k options and everyone is welcome to run, jog or walk. There are no timing chips so no one can be last.
As well as a great trail run (6k & 11k) organisers say they aim to keep the fantastic end of run feeling going for as long as possible: “Too often after after a run everyone is sharing their good vibes and then you have trudge off home alone. It's happened to me and that's why Women Run Strong is different. The good feeling continues long after the run.”
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 as your entry to the draw.
With only 200 places available, those interested are advised to act fast to avoid disappointment. For more information and to enter, go to the Women Run Strong website
