Sporting Challenges in Scotland

testimonialWe all have an edge, and this race is designed to push those physical and mental limits, to there and beyond.
Bear Grylls

Sporting challenges, obstacle courses and races

With 15km of paths and beautiful countryside, Winton Estate near Edinburgh is a great location for sporting challenges, obstacle courses and races.

We run our own Winton Trail Run annually.

Spartan Races have twice been hosted at Winton with nearly 5,000 visitors taking part.

In 2016 Bear Grylls brought his renowned spirit of fitness and adventure to Winton Castle for the first ever Bear Grylls event in Scotland.

BG Survival Race participants experienced a range of ultra-dynamic, Bear Grylls-inspired obstacles en route to the finish line of the 5k or 10k course.

The 5k Survival Race was packed with exciting challenges, designed for all levels of fitness. It was a fantastic event to tackle individually or in a group with friends. BG Kids Race was all about inspiring young ones to enjoy the outdoors.

Bear Grylls said the aims of the race were:

"This is about empowering people to test and extend their adventure fitness, using the type of obstacles that I have often encountered in the wild."
