Ailnack Gorge Run, Tomintoul – 10.00am Saturday 9th November 2019 – 2-3hr trail run.

Setting off from Tomintoul, this app. 13mile/20km circular run will take 2-3 hours and explore some of the areas of Glenlivet you might not know existed. Mainly on paths and tracks this route also covers rough ground so good shoes and a background of hill or trail running will help you enjoy this outing.

This app. 10mile/16km run around the Abernethy Forest explores some routes you may know and probably ones you don’t! Get a true feel of the Cairngorms in Autumn as we follow tracks and trods up the quieter side of the River Nethy before visiting Ryvoan Bothy and returning to the start of the run. Parking is limited at the start point, so we will meet in Nethy Bridge and car share to the start.

Cost: £25 per person.

Glenlivet Hill Runs – Dates to suit.

Currently we have dates for the two runs as detailed above. We also have interest in a Glenlivet hill run and have a couple of excellent routes devised. Both cover some rough and wet ground and include 1500-2000ft of ascent, but any hardships are made well worth while by the quality of the running and scenery. If you are interested in joining us for this adventure then please get in touch and we shall find a time to suit.
