The senior Turnhouse Hill race (5.2kms, 310 metres) is a traditional hill race suited for all runners with hill running experience. Although relatively short, the main ascent and descent to/from the summit are steep so hill shoes are advised. The route is mostly tracked although the steep climb up to the summit is through heather.

The race start is a few minutes jog up the glen road from the Flotterstone car park (NT229631).

There is also a shorter (2.2 kms, 160 metres) junior race (ages 10-15). This is turn up on the day and FREE.

Getting There

By Car

Registration (from 6pm) is near the Pentland café at the Flotterstone car park (EH26 0PR or NT232630) within the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

Due to limited parking, it would be appreciated if you could car share as much as possible.

There will be marshals assisting with car parking, please take advice from them regarding parking and follow their instructions.

Please note that the Flotterstone carpark has been undergoing "maintanance" and it is unclear how much of it will be usable. We will post an update on the SHR webpage if we think there could be parking issues.


By Bus

Take the number  101 or 102 (Houston buses): link


There are very limited toilet facilities behind the Pentland café.

There are no changing and showering facilities available.


This race is run under SHR rules and although close to the longest day of the year, all runners must carry full body cover (weather conditions applicable) and a whistle. A compass is not needed as the course will be marshalled but you are advised to print a copy of the map.
