The trail races are taking place alongside the Floors Castle Duathlon on the same day.


The Floors Castle trail race is organised by the same team as the award winning East Fortune Duathlon. Don't take our word for it,  here's what some of our previous competitors have said...

"Brilliantly organised, communicated, marshalled, and planned.  Probably the best multisport event I’ve competed in"


Floors Castle is located just outside Kelso close to the Scottish Border. It is approximately 1 hour south east of Edinburgh and 1 hour 30 minutes north west of Newcastle.

Please enter via the main entrance to the south east of the castle and follow signs to the car park. Search for postcode TD5 7RL to locate this entrance.
