This is the 37th year that Penicuik Harriers have hosted this event and each year lots of runners come from far and wide to enjoy the route and the stunning views.

Our race is known for 3 things :-

1. The Hill – This is Pomathorn hill and is at the 1.5km point in the race. The hill is 1.4km long with an average gradient of 6% here is link to the Strava segment called ‘B7026 climb’ which shows the details: Pomathorn

2. The Support – We have no less than 40 of our club members marshalling the route and are all know for being really encouraging and supportive – please listen to their instructions because they are there to keep you safe too.

3. The Post-Race Spread – Gone are the days when we would hand out a Mars Bar and a sandwich 🙂 Our club members get their aprons on and provide home-baking for you all to enjoy some home-made deliciousness after the race. For this we ask for donations for the mental health charities that we will be supporting.

For pre-entry simply fill in our online form via EntryCentral – and pay online too, no posting required!  We can also accept postal entries – please download, print & complete this form and return it together with the entry fee by Thursday 7th May 2020

    Great event. This is the 2nd year I’ve taken part and loved it just as much. Everyone is so friendly and it is so well organised. The tablet at the end of the race was excellent too. Thank you!! Perfect day – roll on next year!!

  2. John says:

    It’s my first time and it won’t be the last ….well done to your team.

  3. Marjorie Marshall says:

    Entered race this week but unfortunately have pulled muscle in right calf so have to be sensible and call off. Hope everyone has a great run – will miss that hill!

  4. Neil Black says:

    I’m sure you’re aware already, but just wanted to let you know that there’s a fragile concrete manhole cover that looks like it could collapse under weight. It’s on pavement midway between Wellington School and the long downhill stretch.
    Looking forward to race!

    Ran this race before, it was one of the best.

  6. Jim Macgregor says:

    I can’t think of a better organised race than this – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve done it – it’s always one of the highlights of the running year.
    Well done to all concerned.
