How to find us

Set in the Heart of the Cairngorms National Park, the village of Braemar offers instant access to the wilderness of Scotland.

Heart of the Park Challenge is a multi terrain foot race, set in the immediate area around Braemar and run over a 12 km course. It offers runners of all levels - from fun runner to top class athlete - the opportunity to test themselves in some of the most beautiful natural surroundings that Scotland has to offer.

The course follows a well-marked trail which offers hill, water, forest and obstacle challenges throughout its length. The route will pass through distinct zones which include “the wet n’ wild zone”, “the mud n’ mire zone” and “the Assault zone.” Participants should expect the unexpected!!

The 'Challenge' has been set to raise funds for the 'Castleton Project' a registered charity whose aims are to develop community and sporting facilities for all that visit and reside in the area. If you would like to support this worthy cause please use the sponsorship form provided.

The 'Heart of the Park Challenge' will take place during the same weekend as the 'Junior Highland Games' with a full programme of spectator and participant events being open to those who wish come along.
