June 17th 2017 sees the 2nd year of this exciting hill running relay event.
Although still concentrated on the scenic Ochil Hills surrounding the
spectacular Alva Glen, the routes have been altered from last year.
Again, the relay comprises of three legs (each of which will be run by a
separate competitor) with each changeover taking place in the Johnstone
park, giving spectators and competitors an exciting view of their team's
The first leg is a 6.0km run, running into the picturesque Alva Glen, then
around and back over The Nebit before returning to the Johnstone Park.
There are 2 checkpoints to negotiate on this leg.
The second leg is the longest leg at 7.5km with a formidable and steep
climb up Torry. Competitors will run over Midhill, descend into the depths
of Alva Glen, then onto The Nebit before returning to the Johnstone park.
There are 4 checkpoints en route.
The 3rd leg, the shortest at 4.75km, has runners heading through the length
of Alva Glen to the 'Smugglers Cave' viewpoint, before running up a steep
of the east gully of Torry, passing 2 checkpoints en route and back to
finish at the Johnstone Park.

instructions please check out the tabs on this website. Hope to see you and
your team there for some fun, team spirit and camaraderie.
Teams can comprise runners from one or more hill running clubs
so do not need to be solely from one club.
