by Ross McLennan — 30th August 2016.

The first Come and Train event is Sunday 4th September at Linlithgow Loch.

Registration and start/finish are at St Ninians Way car park. Entry on the day with starts from 11am-12.30pm

Courses are:

  • Yellow - 2km goes through the beautiful parkland surrounding Linlithgow Palace
  • Orange - 3.5km goes round Linlithgow Loch (watch out for the swans!)
  • Green - 3.5km (straight line, more like 5km actually) - a mix of urban O and grassy lochside - for over 16s only.

(Please note that the above courses are the same ones used for the WEE on 5th May, so if you came before you can try to beat your previous time!)

Bring the wee ones with you - there will be a string course and even a super playground right next to the car park.

There is a great choice of cafes open in Linlithgow on a Sunday for post-O lunch.

We have done a lot of publicity in Linlithgow so are hoping for quite a few local newcomers. So if you can help on registration or help Meet and Greet to explain to novices what to do for an hour or so from 10.45, then please let me know.

Any questions, drop Jen a line.
