Entry cost: £6

The Turnhouse Hill race (5.2kms, 310 metres) is a traditional “turn up on the day” hill race suited for all runners with hill running experience. Although relatively short, the main ascent and descent to/from the summit are steep so hill shoes are advised.

The race start is a few minutes jog up the road from the Flotterstone car park (NT229631).

Getting There

By Car

Registration (from 6pm) is near the Pentland café at the Flotterstone car park (EH26 0PR or NT232630) within the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

Due to limited parking it would be appreciated by the organisers if you could car share as much as possible.

There will be marshals assisting with car parking, please take advice from them regarding parking and follow their instructions.

By Bus

Take the number 101 or 102 to Flotterstone

By Bike

Race registration is free for anyone cycling to the event.

Facilities

There are very limited toilet facilities behind the Pentland café.

There are no changing and showering facilities available.

Safety

This race is run under SHR rules and although close to the longest day of the year, all runners must run with full body cover (weather conditions applicable) and a whistle. A compass is not needed as the course will be marshalled but you are advised to print of a copy of the map.
