Kirkhill 8

Kirkhill 8

The 3rd Kirkhill 8 will take place on Saturday, 24th May, 2025.

This will be the second Kirkhill 8, an event for beginners, experienced ultra runners and racing snakes alike in one of the North Easts most picturesque forests. 

A 4.3 mile loop ran entirely on trails, over an 8 hour period.

Target any distance you want, 20 miles, 26.2 miles 50k, 40 miles or even 50 miles.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
