EVENT SOLD OUT
Registration & event start: Glentress
One of the biggest enduro races in the Scottish race calendar, the Scottish Open sold out in just a few days last year. The event features some track sections used at the Enduro World Series race in May, and aims to be the premier ‘one-off’ Scottish national level enduro race in Scotland. It’s suitable for experienced riders and is intended as a challenging but enjoyable event (though not suitable for beginners).

The King & Queen of the Hill is held on Forestry Commission Scotland’s Forest trails. Start and finish in the centre of Peebles.
