I hope everyone is all set for Sunday's event at Balkello - the weather is looking promising so hopefully will see some sunshine on the Sidlaws!

As the weather has been dry we will have access to the large parking field next to the main Community Woodland at Balkello - please access the car park as usual and someone will direct you appropriately. There is a single portaloo for the event, further public toilets are located at the park in Kirkton of Auchterhouse approximately 2km away.

On the maps not all tracks are marked in the open area - there are some small intermittent tracks and ATV tracks that will come and go. Gorse is generally well marked but more extensive is some areas. The pylon towers are marked but not the power lines. Check you know the symbol for pylon towers.

For all courses you will need to collect your map and clear your dibber at registration which will be located near the car park. The brown, blue and green courses use a far start which is unmanned and has no clear station so it is particularly important that you collect your map and clear your dibber before you set off. The route to the far start will be taped and is 1.8km with 210m climb, leave around 20-30 minutes to get there.

All other courses (trail loop, white, yellow, orange, light green and short green) begin near registration. The finishes for all courses are also located near registration.


Both starts are unmanned punching starts and there are no formal start times, suggested start windows are listed below with a full list available on the website shortly. Please ensure you leave at least a minute between each runner.

I look forward to seeing you all,

Gillian Tuddenham
