About the Race:-
The Multi Terrain Race is a tough 1/2 Marathon round the town of Forfar. The race route contains a varied mixture of running surfaces from country park paths, tarmac, pavement, farm tracks, fields and bogs – and a water section which can be knee deep (and ice cold).
The course will be route marked, it is advised that:
Due to bad weather or directional signs being misplaced every runner studies and carries a map of the course. If you know your way then great – if you don’t either stay with the pack or carry a map.
After race hospitality is legendary with bar open from 12:30pm and the club laying on a gigantic feast for the hungry runners and spectators.
Due to the time of year it is advisable that you carry liquid, food & full body cover inc hat gloves dry top and waterproofs.
This race is not recommended for novice runners.
Please note: For the last couple of years there has been rather more water than usual so an alternative multi route has been in operation. It’s worth noting that the deep, lengthy watery bit is missed out (to keep you safe) which means that the route is a little shorter than a half marathon.
