The Saltire 24 is the first ultra running event in the North East of Scotland. The inaugural Saltire 24 event is NEWLY scheduled for 11th-12th June 2022 after we had to postpone the 2020 event. 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 including catering, music, shop etc. and there is access to the shower block next to the conference centre.
