SCOTLAND'S FESTIVAL OF TRAILRUNNING
Trailfest brings a new dimension to the already-vibrant trailrunning scene in Scotland. Trailfest is a celebration of trailrunning that combines racing, training, advice, inspiration from elites, and our own runners’ after-party to create one epic day.
With this year’s theme being ‘Building the Dream’, we have created a programme of guests who have their own awe-inspiring stories to tell of how they have built their own dreams and how you can too. Whether you’ve got your sights set on an FKT (Fastest Known Time), want to complete a multi-stage ultra, or dream of completing a 10K, the lessons and inspiration from our guests will give you the belief and inspiration to help you achieve your own dreams.
We have built the day around four themes:
TrailFIT | TrailHEROES | TrailRUN | TrailCHAT
Strength & Conditioning
Yoga for Runners
Run with the Elites
Stories, advice and inspiration from runners who defined their own 'extraordinary'
HOKA ONE ONE Mugdock Mile
TrailFest Five (5K) (note: this is a self-timed 'Strava' run and not a mass-start)
