We are now accepting postal entries to the 2012 Murieston Trail Race. This year's race will take place on Saturday 8 September.
The innagrual Murieston 6K Trail Race took place on Saturday 10th September 2011. It was originally organised jointly by Corstorphine Athletics Club (CAAC) and Livingston Cricket Club (LCC), and timed to coincide with LCC’s Family Day, the race was run over varying surfaces around Murieston Trail in Livingston.
Now a Corstorphine Athletics Club event in its own right, we are thankful to Livingston Cricket Club for the use of their facilities on the day of the race.
Starting with a lap of the Cricket pitch, and a short section of tarmac footpath on Murieston Valley to Nevis Drive, the route then follows a well marked red shale track along the trail and around the pond before joining the boardwalk by the Murieston Water. After climbing and descending the steps in the wood, the route re-joins the red shale path towards Livingston South Station before a short uphill section on tarmac at Robin’s Way then back through the woods to the Cricket Club for a final lap of the pitch and a welcome arrival at the finish line.
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
Male & Female: 1st, 2nd & 3rd
Male Masters: 1st over 40, 1st over 50
Female Masters: 1st over 35, 1st over 45
1st under 20 (Male & Female)
1st Local Resident (Male & Female)
