Lanark Trail Race Festival

Lanark's Trail Run Festival, Sunday 9 August 2015

Join SLLC and a host of local partners in a morning of racing and family fun!

On Sunday 9 August SLLC will host a morning of racing and family fun at Lanark Racecourse from 9:00am - 1:00pm (approx).

3 exciting events...

5k Family Fun Run
This event will be a fabulous starter event for juniors, families and new runners alike... walk, run or jog...it’s up to you!

When we asked the local community what they would like the event to include we had countless requests for a fancy dress theme! We then took to the local primary schools and asked the children to vote for which theme they would prefer out of five and the winner (by a huge number of votes) was.....BEACH PARTY!!!

Fancy dress is of course optional but if you have a grass skirt or Hawaiian shirt, why not look it out and join in with the fun.  There will be prizes on the day for the best dressed.

The route for this race incorporates Lanark racecourse and Lanark Loch.

Start time 10:45am


10k Trail Race
The 10k race will be perfect for our more serious runners and those looking to push themselves that little bit further.

Similar to the 5k race, this too will incorporate the racecourse & loch as well as taking runners through the Lanark Moor Cycle Track and out to loop around the Old Smyllum House

Start time 10:30am
