About Us

Pitlochry 2018

FALKLAND TRAIL RUNNERS:

Who are we?

Our club was founded to encourage runners of all abilities to come & run with us over the tracks & trails of Falkland Estate and the surrounding area. Our runs are inclusive and we try to match groups by ability where practical.

What is the club like though?

The ethos of the club is to have some fun along with our running. Training sessions are sometimes a bit seat of the pants due to the location and terrain that we run on. Weather can play havoc with our plans so we prefer to organise sessions around the attendees and the prevailing conditions.

We have a broad range of abilities and you will get encouraged to push yourself. We have people who just want to get fit, we have Parkrunners, Hill Runners, Racers who do everything from 5k to Ultras. You will meet people who share your interest and more importantly who are happy to share their experience and enthusiasm.

Have a look at the training page to see what goes on.

The club welcomes pets to its sessions. All we ask is that you make sure you have your own public liability insurance that covers your pet during sessions and that you follow some simple rules.

Other stuff:

We are a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2012, run by members for our members. We are now an established part of the running community in Scotland.

We have a strong community focus – while some of the surplus we make from events goes into club development, we have also donated to Falkland Estate, Falkland War Memorial, Falkland Cricket Club, the ‘Friends of Craightoun Park’ and many other good causes.

The club have been affiliated with scottishathletics since 2015. We are also a member of  the Association of Running Clubs.

We organise trail races throughout the year. Forthcoming races can be seen on our events page.

So if you fancy training and running with a friendly group then we’re at Falkland Community Hall at 6:30pm on Thursdays and 9:30am on Sundays. We have tea/coffee, stretching and a chat at the end of each session. The cost of all of this Squirrely goodness? A single new pound!
