Pre Event Info
Braes was mapped many years ago but for some reason never used until interest from Logie Coldstone school led to the map being redrawn and updated in 2017. It is a delightful flat and runnable area with soft contours that could make for some tricky navigation at night.
Everyone welcome including non night afficionados. We will have Logie Coldstone hall available for registration, warming up and refuelling after the race and hope that everyone will take time to stop and socialise. The World Schools fund-raisers will have soup, drinks and cakes on offer.
