Tain Hill Trail Race takes place in Oct/Nov - we always try our best to find a Saturday that doesn't clash with other hill/road races or cross country races in the Highlands, although this has become increasingly difficult with the number of races now on the calendar. It is an 11 mile (approx) route starting off with 2 miles uphill (all on good, runnable track) then undulating on forest tracks round Tain Hill taking in spectacular views on the way and finishing with 1 mile downhill on tarmac road. It starts at TRACC (at the back of Tain Academy) on Hartfield Road and finishes outside Carnegie Hotel on Viewfield Road. There is also a 7 mile Joggers Challenge and 7 mile Walk open to all ages so this is very much a family event. Those who wish can request a sponsor form to raise funds for CLIC Sargent (Caring for Children with Cancer) but this is optional. However we would urge those not raising sponsorship to make a donation on the day. Since the inaugural race in 2004 we have raised over £8,000 for the charity.

Showers and changing rooms available at TRACC. Refreshments and prize-giving at St Duthus Hotel from 2pm.
