Trail Running Festival

Outsider Events are excited to bring to you a bigger and better 4th edition of Blair Castle Trail Weekender on the 31 May - 2 June 2024


The 2024 event features a wider range of trail races and exciting edition of our outdoor cinema, and range of live music on the Saturday evening...


Staged within the grounds of the iconic Blair Castle on the Atholl Estate, this  weekend of trail running has races from Kids, 7km right up to the 60km 'Full Tilt Ultra'. 

All respective races start at the event village based in the grounds of Blair Castle which nestles at the base of the Cairngorm national park.

From here on out, depending on your choice of race, runners either loop round past Hercules Gardens and back to the start, fork off up the winding Glen Tilt or head toward the 1009m high summit of Ben Dearg. Which trail will you take?

"We've been to Blair Castle Trail Weekender from year one and can safely say it's the best weekend of trail running on the Scottish calendar."


"The atmosphere was amazing. We loved having the chance to camp and film on the Friday, and yoga to finish!"


"The family festival element of the whole weekend is an excellent idea. All members of our family had a great time!"


"Really fun to have so many races on the same weekend so all my friends could participate at different levels, also the music on Saturday night."


"Will definitely be there for a third year next year. We were there with 5 other family and all except 2 didn’t run in any races. We all had such a good time." 


"Utterly stunning weekend!"
