The Stena Drilling 10K takes you through some beautiful Highland scenery on the Balmoral Estate and will be clearly marked and well marshalled. The early part of the course is relatively fast on smooth tarmac, at approximately 3.5K the course rises quite steeply up through the woods of Garmaddie for approximately 1.2K! At the top of the famous “Hill”, you will be met by the sound of the pipes before you enjoy the descent, which continues on the estate tracks then joins the fast, smooth tarmac for the return section back to Balmoral Castle and the final 300 metres to the finish line gantry.
The Harbour Energy 5K all takes place on estate tarmac roads. The race begins heading west from the Castle adjacent the river Dee to a turning point at the Highland Pony Stud. There is a slight incline as the route returns to the castle via the “top road” which has magnificent views of Balmoral Castle and gardens.
Good luck and we can't wait to see you there!
