About
Glentress Forest is described as the 'Gateway to the Tweed Valley Forest Park'. Perhaps more renowned for its mountain biking, Glentress also offers a superb array of forest trails, making it a fantastic location for trail running. The area features mile upon mile of waymarked trails including forest walks, woodland singletrack and heather clad moorland.Situated between the small Borders towns of Peebles and Innerleithen & just one hour away from Edinburgh, the location is second to none.

Perfect day for a trail run so everyone was flying. It is a smallish event so there wasn't as much atmosphere as the great Scottish run but perfect for me. I stayed a long weekend and enjoyed Peebles for 2 nights. Great place.

Was a bit apprehensive about the run as I haven't been running too long and want sure if I was ready for three elevation , but it was an amazing run and fantastic atmosphere for the whole thing and will gladly run it again . I have only been running for a few months and done it under an hour so anyone can give it a go

A great run with a strong set of runners, very well organised from start to finish, location was outstanding too, only issue was the 10k fell short of the 10k distance coming it at 9.7k

My first trail race and I managed 9th. Weather was perfect. Sun and blue skies with frozen ground underfoot. Id had a look around the course a couple of weeks beforehand and it was knee deep in snow. A few days after the race and it was covered in snow again so perfect timing. Great atmosphere and really well organised.

The route and atmosphere on the day was amazing. Very tough course made even more difficult by the weather and elements. Tough long uphill sections, technical forest trail, never ending switch backs, and tough uneven downhill dashes. All in all - everything you can ask for in a trail run. Just glad I wasn't doing the double - legs were gone by the end. Amazing event and definitely be back.

This was a really tough race on varied terrain. Lots of big climbs, physically challenging, but I'm glad I did it

Basic information is good but the at that day registration waiting time was a bit long, outside was cold you know.

Did the half in November which really helped me work out kit requirements and pacing. Get a bladder pack or a vest with bottle space at the front. Not drinking on the climbs will finish you off.

Glentress is always a challenge and differs greatly dependent on the weather conditions leading up to the race and the conditions on the day. Three years in a row running it and each year it feels like a whole different race. Its always an awesome challenge. Shoe choice is crucial :)
