The challenge day!

It will be an early start, with registration at 6am before the challenge begins at 7am. You will first head west, along the water of Leith before reaching your first hill (Corstorphine Hill) from here you will join the union canal before heading up to the second hill (Craiglockhart Hill East). From here the route heads to it’s most southern point at the top of Braid Hill, your third hill. Your views from here will take in the entire route, and framed in the centre of your view will be Edinburgh castle, dominating the horizon. Your next stop will be Blackford hill and the royal observatory (hill number five). You then head westwards towards the extinct volcano of Arthur’s seat that sits perched, overlooking the entire city. After the steep ascent to the summit you will be glad of the welcome gradual descent down to the palace of Holyrood.  After stopping for photos at the palace gates there is the final summit of Carlton hill where you will get to celebrate with incredible views along Princess street, Edinburgh’s old town and the castle.
