The Saltire 24 is a 24 hour ultra running event in the North East of Scotland. Now scheduled for Saturday 10th of June - Sunday 11th of June 2023. We invite you to celebrate midsummer by running through the beautiful Aberdeenshire scenery and testing your stamina!
This lapped endurance trail running event is set at the superb outdoor sports facility of Knockburn Sports Loch. It will have two race options: either 24 hours, starting at 10.00 on the Saturday of the event weekend and finishing at 10:00 on Sunday morning, or 12 hours, starting at 10:00 on Saturday morning and finishing at 22:00 on Saturday evening.
Participants will follow waymarked trails within the confines of the Knockburn estate. For teams: please note that only ONE team member will be running at any time. The lap distance is 4.2 miles, which means determined athletes can achieve to run 100 miles, a ‘century’, within 24 hours if they complete 1 lap per hour. Fixed and mobile safety marshals and medics will be located around the course. Limited serviced camping will be available for the duration of the event. Peripheral support will be available at the event base in the Sports Academy and there is access to the shower block next to the conference centre.
