What is the TrailFest Solstice Trail series?

The inaugural Solstice Trail Series is a three-race series featuring some of the best trails to be found between Glasgow and The Trossachs. The routes have been carefully designed to challenge and reward runners, whether you’re chasing a time, or running your first trail race.

Each evening race will start and finish at Mugdock Country Park Visitor Centre and will feature wide tracks, technical singletrack, hills and stunning views on the extensive trail network both within the Country Park and in Craigallian Woods.

The 7km Race- 7th June

The 7km is a fast course which will see runners vying for early positions and eyeing up the two long sections of flat, wide trail where speed will be the order of the day.

7km

The 12km Race- 14th June

The 12km route follows parts of the 7km route before it leaves the Park and crosses into Craigallian Woods. Here we mix wide forest tracks with some awesome, singletrack. The wide tracks offer a chance to look up and take in your surroundings, while the singletrack will demand your concentration on the forest floor.

12km

The 15km Race- 21st June

The 15km follows a mix of trails in the Park in the first half of the race, before heading deep into the woods for a thrilling mix of wide tracks and tight, technical singletrack.
