Notes

Trimontium is the name of a Roman fort at Newstead near Melrose, Scottish Borders (close to the 3 Eildons). Trimontium (Tri - 3, montium - hills) was occupied by the Romans intermittently from 80 to 211AD.
For this race taking place in March you will be running in the opposite direction to The Eildons 10 Mile Trail Race in previous years - clockwise. So starting at the same point - the bottom of Boglie Road - you will then be directed towards the River Tweed first before taking on the 3 Eildons at the end then continuing on a new route to finish just outside Melrose Rugby Club. A total distance of c 11 miles.

The only water station will be in the conservation village of Bowden which is just around the halfway point. Around 70% of the route is trail with mud a distinct possibility and an outside chance of snow on the peaks. Please choose your footwear carefully and wear warm clothing for this race.

Kit List
Compulsory - Waterproof jacket/top

Advisory - Wooly hat or similar, map, whistle, energy bar/gel, drink, mobile phone

This race will be marked with correx signs, arrows and marshals.

*We plan to hold the 3 Eildons Trail Race in the usual anticlockwise direction towards the end of August. This is good training for any runner entering the Jed Ultra Race which is held at the end of October every year, as this route takes in the middle part of that race.

As usual, registration will take place at the Melrose Rugby Club where hot showers and a free buffet of traybakes, cakes and hot drinks etc. will take place after the event for all those who conquer the Trimontium XI.
