2019 map drawn by Chris Smithard.

Final details:

Chris has produced a brand new map of a (surprisingly) nice area with a good deal of fast, runnable forest, not much by way of brambles, and a very unexpected sculpture. James has planned a range of courses from a 1.5km Yellow to a 6.2km Blue and all courses share a common last control for the Festive Run-In competition (with a prize for the winner!).

Registration and start/finish will be at the playing field area adjacent to the small car park off Haugh St - see map on this page. Once the car park is full then there’s plenty of on-street parking nearby or you could take the train to Falkirk Grahamston and use the 2km to the start as a warm up.

Starts are from 11am and courses close at 1pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to finish your Christmas shopping afterwards!
