The Lost Trails Race

THE LOST TRAILS RACE 2018 will be held on Sunday 15th April, starting at 11.00am. The race is approx. 8km / 5 miles in distance run on forest trails within the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate.

The route is similar to 2017, but the start & finish will be in the playing field near Falkland Cricket Club. That means you won’t have the heaven-bound climb right from the start line! The 2018 route heads up through the Maspie Den, then over to the Bluebrae Plantation with a brilliant "off-piste" section through the trees. You’ll then take in the tracks around the mountain bike area, before heading back downhill through Bluebrae again and Mill Burn. No Tufties race would be complete without a visit to the Squirrel Trail, and this is no exception.

It’s the usual kind of Tufties race - excellent flowing trails, some narrow and tight bits, some testing hills ... and you will definitely - VERY definitely - finish the race with shoes that are "bogging" and wet!

Number pick-up, changing facilities, toilets, results and presentation of awards will all take place at the Old Town Hall, Back Wynd, Falkland, Fife, KY15 7BX from 9:15am on race day. PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION OF RACE HQ - IT IS NOT THE COMMUNITY HALL. The event documents have directions to the Old town Hall.

There’s only 150 places. These went in a flash last year, so be quick! Entries close on Sunday 8th April, with NO LATE ENTRIES.

Here’s what it’ll be like:
