Welcome to TweedLove’s trail-running event.

Welcome to the Odlo Glentress 11. Last year, this event was TweedLove’s first ever trail-running event, and turned out to be a hot and dusty success. For 2018, we’ve also added a bitesize 5k that is open to 11 years+.

As you might guess from the name, the event shares a lot in common with the ever-popular Odlo Glentress 7 endurance mtb race.

The course will be more or less the same one used for the bike race, which is the following day.

The Odlo Glentress 5km & 11km trail run aims to share the same sense of fun and adventure that the bike race has done successfully for the last six years. The courses are just under 5km & 11km and features some beautiful bike and foot trails around Glentress forest.
