The National Trust for Scotland invites you to join us on Saturday 15th September for the 2018 PIM Half Marathon at Crathes Castle.

Starting beside the fairytale like Crathes Castle the route takes you out onto the country roads to the north and east of the estate grounds. You head out towards the estate of fellow NTS property, Drum Castle, eventually turning and heading back in a loop back towards Crathes and finishing in front of the castle.

This Year we are also introducing a children's cross country 1.5km race! This will be open to all primary school aged children and will take place at 11am before the Half Marathon.
