Route information
The route begins at Port Seton Promenade, hugging the coastline, the trail follows the well-established John Muir Way meandering through a number of historic towns and villages including: Aberlady, Gullane, North Berwick and East Linton with the race finishing at FoxTrail HQ. The trail varies underfoot with sections of gravel paths, farm tracks, and roadside paths in the village sections. The John Muir Way is a relatively flat course making for some fast finish times over the years.
