What is the TrailFest Solstice Trail series?
The Solstice Trail Series is a three-race series featuring some of the best trail running 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 8km Race- 6th June
The 8km 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.
The 12km Race- 13th June
The 12km route follows parts of the 8km 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.
The 16km Race- 20st June
The 16km 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.
