No cars at top Red Moss car park ! £5 race entry fee for everyone

Only runners or cyclists at race registration

Small acts do make a difference!  If one Swedish school girl can stop the Scottish Gov from cutting air departure tax ... who knows what Scottish hill runners could do!!

On this note ... in spirit of Climate Change Emergency - the Red Moss race on Wed 5th June is going even more Low Carbon this year .. no cars in top car park (at request of local landowners) ... so cycle or get the bus and run the last 2km from Balerno village as a warm up! (... allow an extra 20 mins if running from Balerno)

If you must drive, feel guilty, car share and park in the village - near the Grey Horse pub / shops in Balerno.

Also no more ‘free lunches’ ... Race entry is now £5 for everyone incl cyclists ... this includes a £3 per runner donation to ‘Friends of the Pentlands‘ at request of the landowners to repair paths / mend gates, + £2 per runner soup levy to fund refreshments in the Grey Horse pub after the race.

  • Free pint of beer for any finisher who beats or equals their age in minutes - if you make it to the pub after the race!
  • Race record is 41 mins - so a good target for all Vets!! 
  • Pre-enter via Si Entries (from 6am Mon 20th May), or cycle to the race for entry on the night at £5
  • Fast running on tracks and footpaths, with two climbs up the Kips.

  • If you leave your car at home , and take public transport or cycle to the start - there will be limited entries on the day (at £5)
