Held on 27th & 28th April this year, this iconic running event happens annually and attracts hundreds of runners from near and far and is just a 13 minute drive from Braemar. We still have some availability in our cabins if you are participating and fancy the ideal base nearby.

This event has been running since 1998 and all proceeds from entry fees go back into the event to keep up improvements year on year.

Many runners return every year as you can absolutely make a day of it walking from the carpark through beautiful Balmoral grounds to a range of activities and foodie treats whether you are running or simply spectating. There is such a great buzz to this event!

Running over the Saturday and into Sunday, events include a 10k and 5k and also a 1.5k and 2.5k for school age runners. The 10k race is a stunning route through Balmoral Estate and the challenging hill within the route has become infamous! There is something about this route that entices runners back time and time again.

If you are looking for a higher level challenge, you can return on Sunday for the duathlon race, 15 mile or 3 mile trail races. For the super adventurous there is the Devil O Deeside, for which you need to complete the 10k, 5k, 15 mile race and the duathlon.

If you’re looking for a team building exercise there is the corporate team challenge on the Saturday which is a great opportunity to get together with your colleagues and work together and maybe even win a trophy!

Whatever your age or ability, RunBalmoral caters to all and has an excellent family feel, with many stalls and a dedicated massage tent for your post recovery.

Book into one of our cosy cabins and have the perfect setting to both prepare and recover from your run.
