5 & 10K trail run

The 5k course will start at Lanark Racecourse and head down towards Lanark Loch. From here runners will run a full loop of the loch then head back up towards the racecourse, before entering the racecourse runners will turn into the woods/cycle path for 3/4 of this route before re-joining the racecourse for a final lap.

The 10k route is a challenging double circuit of the 5k.

Course surfaces: Lanark loch - red gravel, Lanark racecourse - grass, woods/cycle route – trail

3K trail run **New for 2019**
