You'd better be quick as there is a limit of 200 runners and last time it was a total sell-out.

The Dirty Weekend has three races – each very different and with its unique set of challenges! We’ll use some well-known tracks and discover some new ones that have never been used in any previous races.

We will be incorporating all of the usual 'Attractions' associated with Psycho Squirrel Races including old favourites such as the Tunnel of Love plus new features - the Maiden’s Moisty Dell and Batty Badgers.

There will be plenty of opportunity to get dirty during The Dirty Weekend. You WILL get wet

As well as the races, we will have a gentle 5km jogscotland run through the estate at 2:30pm on Saturday.

RACE DETAILS

The Dirty Weekend is a Series of three individual Trail Races held over three consecutive days. On Friday and Saturday the races start at 6.30pm leaving you time to do all the usual boring stuff during the day! On Sunday the race starts at 2:30pm.

Each of the three races will follow a different route on trails and paths within the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate. Exact distances for each race will be confirmed nearer the time but will vary between approx. 4 & 6 miles.

RACE 2 - Saturday 29th July at 6.30pm – Tufty’s Revenge

RACE 3 - Sunday 30th July at 2:30pm – The Blue Brae Polka

Times and finishing positions will be recorded at each individual race. Competitors individual race times are added together to determine the overall series and age group winners. Entrants do not have to start / finish every race, but only those completing all three events will be eligible for awards. There will be an extensive list of overall and age category awards.
