The Solstice Trail Series is a three-race series featuring some of the best trailrunning to be found between Glasgow and The Trossachs. The routes have been carefully designed to challenge and reward runners, whether you’re chasing a time, or running your first trail race.

Each evening race will start and finish at Mugdock Country Park Visitor Centre and will feature wide tracks, technical singletrack, hills and stunning views on the extensive trail network both within the Country Park and in Craigallian Woods.

New routes for 2019!

Similar to last year, you can expect a mix of wide, fast trails, technical singletrack sections to focus your concentration, big hills and big views all on the vast trail network in Mugdock Country Park and surrounding area. The finalised routes will be published in due course. On top of this we promise a warm welcome, a great race atmosphere and our awesome race marshals will be out on the course to keep you going.
