COVID-19 INFORMATION

During the period of COVID-19 restrictions the race will take place in a time-trial format, with runners starting in 5 second intervals. The published results will show a chip time (which is the actual time you ran the course) and the official time (which is when the stopwatch starts). Your entry form will ask you to give an estimated 5km time and this will allow us to allocate you in the correct time slot to avoid any pinch points along the route.

Organiser's Description

20 Along the Forth, 26th March 2023

* This beautiful 20 mile event is perfect training for runners taking part in a 2023 Spring Marathon.
* The route is on approx 50% tarmac and 50% farm roads. It is undulating (1094ft of overall climb) but there are no ‘big’ hills to tackle.
* The route starts in Cramond and takes you through Dalmeny Estate then out into the town of South Queensferry and up and over the Forth Road Bridge before heading back to Cramond.
* Please note that there are no road closures for this race.
* There will be water stations at miles 8, 12 and 18.5 which will have water and Active Route sports drink. You are encouraged to run with your own water carrier and to fill this up.
* The route will be marked and there will be marshals on the course but the final responsibility is with the runner. The Strava map will be shared with you well in advance of the race.
* It is a fundraising event for The MS Society and 25% of your entry goes to the charity.
* 300 maximum entries

There are 3 starting groups:
8.30am for runners who intend to run the route with some walk breaks and may take 4 to 4.5 hours.
