Race Registration is on the day at at Damn Delicious, Thankerton Camp Farm, Thankerton, Biggar ML12 6PD. Please register between 1230 and 1330. Start time is 1400. Please car share where possible.

Drivers will be directed to the farm for registration and parking. Parking is strictly to be on the farm grounds. Runners must not park at the Tinto public car park, or on any other roads nearby. There have been safety issues in previous years, and the police have stipulated that any parking on roads, or runners crossing or walking along the main road, will not be tolerated.


Although on good paths, the race follows an unmarked course that crosses ground above 2000 feet.

Competitors must take primary responsibility for their own safety on the hills, including carrying sufficient safety equipment throughout the race to be able to navigate and protect themselves in the worst possible winter weather conditions. Competitors must have the following minimum kit with them at all times during the race: waterproof jacket with hood, waterproof overtrousers, hat, gloves, whistle, and map and compass suitable for navigating the course. This is the minimum kit requirement for this event, but you are responsible for carrying any additional items you consider necessary for your own protection given the conditions, or as the race organiser may dictate on the day. Kit checks will be made prior to race start.

The minimum age is 16. There are no prizes for juniors. There is a separate Tinto Junior Hill Race which has an under 18's category, more details of which can be found on the Carnethy HRC web site.

If you retire from the race you must inform the nearest marshal and return your number to the race organiser before you go home.


Presentation of prizes will take place back at Damn Delicious after the race where refreshments will be available. There will be free soup available for all runners, and Damn Delicious will be selling a selection of burgers, rolls, cakes, tea and coffee. In an effort to reduce plastic waste, it would be fantastic if everyone could bring their re-usable cup (we all have one these days don't we) for soup, tea, etc.

This race is organised by Carnethy Hill Running Club. Carnethy Hill Running Club is a company limited by guarantee incorporated in Scotland with registered number SC492072 and having its registered office at Munro Cottage, Loanstone, Penicuik, EH26 8PH
