Scottish Assault Courses (SAC) Edinburgh recently launched its purpose-built, 2 mile long Edinburgh Assault Course on Winton Estate, chock-a-block with entertaining obstacles. There are challenges for all-comers, from children and parents, and stag and hen groups, to company teams, OCR enthusiasts and running clubs: monkey bars, high walls, tunnels and, of course, lots of mud and water!

The course is the base of Scottish Assault Courses (SAC) Edinburgh and adds to the Outdoor Challenges and Activities at Winton.

“We wanted to provide a fun but challenging obstacle course for families, as well as one that would appeal to more experienced obstacle course runners (OCR). There’s a muddy crawl net followed by a ‘car wash’ where runners squeezed through tyres and over rollers,” say Scott Smith and Gus Mcleod co-owners of Scottish Assault Courses Edinburgh.

The assault course is suitable for adults and kids age 8 upwards. It’s popular for birthday parties, hen and stag groups, schools, corporate incentive events, company awaydays and OCR enthusiasts. Winton can cater for hungry appetites by laying on delicious party food, from sandwiches and picnics, to BBQs and hog roasts.

The versatile assault course can even be tailored to you specific party’s needs by adding new challenges on the way around.

Safety comes first, of course: our experienced instructors will introduce you to the course, explaining the safest way to tackle the various obstacles, with the focus on fun and fitness.

Winton Halloween 5K Obstacle Run Route

“We got some great feedback from the runners on both the route and obstacles. They loved the course with its steep hills and varied obstacles. The water tunnel was a favourite. The terrain on Winton Estate is excellent and vast, with a route through woods, across fields and over water crossings,” Scott and Gus from SAC Edinburgh conclude.
