After such a successful Conic hill run, bringing 130+ runners to the area for an amazing day out… we thought it only right that we start doing the rounds!
Scotland has some of the most beautiful mountains and breathtaking panoramas in the world. I bet you have always wanted to try hill running but not had the confidence to do it yourself. Don't worry, many people are on the same boat! How about a FREE Sunday stroll with the Run4It Team. The chosen route up and around The Whangie is both fun, easy to follow and gives you a decent mix of terrain.A great introduction to the hills with a spectacular view and awesome rock formations. The route is 3 miles long with a slight detour to the summit stone!
The Route bellow;
Where to meet?
Queens View car park on the A809
What to bring? (PLEASE READ)
-Trail Shoes — SALE NOW ON!
-Warm layers, even if they stay in the bag
-A mobile phone for all that selfie goodness and emergencies.
-Hat/ Buff + gloves
-Extra warm layer in the car for after
-Water (its a short distance run but we will be out for a while)
-Something to snack on
How about food?
There are plenty of Cafe's en route to the Whangie but the area itself is pretty void of shops!
Don't think you can run the whole way up?
Don't worry! nobody will be able to, this run is about fun, trying something new and enjoying the challenge. NOT about having to keep up with anyone. You do your thing!
