Race Entry Information
20 Along The Forth Race Entry
The website organising the 20 Along The Forth is https://blastrunning.co.uk/
The 20 mile Along the Forth race is a good build up event for runners taking part in a spring marathon as it is a few weeks before the London Marathon as well as the Edinburgh, Loch Ness and Chester marathons. The route is on approx 50% on tarmac and 50% on farm roads. It is undulating with 1094ft of overall climb but the race organiser indicates are no big hills to tackle. The route starts in Cramond and takes you through Dalmeny Estate then out into the town of South Queensferry and up and over the Forth Road Bridge before heading back to Cramond. A great opportunity to run this bridge crossing.
Please note that there are no road closures for this event. There will be water stations at miles 8, 12 and 18.5 which will have water and Active Route sports drink. You are encouraged to run with your own water carrier and to fill this up. The route will be marked and there will be marshals on the course but the final responsibility is with the runner. The Strava map will be shared with you well in advance of the race.
It is a fundraising event for The MS Society and 50% of your entry goes to the charity. This is great to see from a race, actively showing the contribution that you are making to charity is quite unusual.
Facilities at start / finish – toilets, changing rooms, bag drop, showers, free car parking, good local bus route, easy access to Edinburgh airport
Max completion time is 4.5 hours, with an early start option for those who may take over 3.5 hours.
