PIM Running Festival

Toggle location map

Run a half-marathon or a 5k at this running event through the country roads around Crathes Castle. There is also a 1.5km route if the wee ones want to partake.

The National Trust for Scotland is delighted to invite you to join us on Saturday 19th September for the 2020 PIM Running Festival at Crathes Castle.

The tremendously popular PIM Half Marathon at Crathes Castle will start at 12:00, right beside our fairytale-like castle, with the route taking you out onto the picturesque country roads to the north and east of the estate grounds. You’ll head out towards the grounds of a fellow National Trust for Scotland property, Drum Castle, eventually turning and heading back in a loop back towards Crathes and finishing in front of the castle.

Following on from the great success of previous years, the PIM Children’s Race will also feature in the Running Festival, starting at 10am giving the youngest runners an opportunity to test their skills on a child-friendly route around the castle grounds.

With the immense popularity of 5K running challenges in mind, PIM and the National Trust for Scotland are also excited that the cross-country PIM 5K at Crathes Castle is returning for 2020 festival. The race is open to participants of secondary-school age upwards and will begin at 11am, taking runners out onto an exciting 5K trail around the forest of Crathes Estate.

As part of the festival, we’ll host a family-friendly play area on the South Lawn in front of the castle and the races will be preceded by a fun-packed warm-up.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in September!
