The Greenmantle Dash (3.2km, 200 metres) is a short hill race packed with a bit of everything – scaling walls, wading burns, traversing bogs, farm fields, steep ascents and descents, as well as a final road sprint to the finish. Hill shoes are however advised!!

The fun run initially follows the main race route (with alternative start to avoid the burn crossing if burn is in spate), with the turn-around point just before the main climb starts (ca. 2.3km, 50 metres).

The race starts in front of Broughton Ales Brewery.

You’re welcome to run in fancy dress!



For environmental reasons and limited parking, please car-share as much as possible. Parking is possible at the back of the village hall and throughout the village, but please don’t create any obstructions for the local residents.



There are toilets and changing facilities in the village hall and public toilets in the park close to the start (don’t rely on them to be open).

This race is run under SHR rules (more details here and although it’s a short, well-marshalled race, the weather conditions can be rather grim in January.

If you retire from the race, please inform the nearest marshal and return your number to the finish (race organiser).
