Edinburgh Ultrasprint

Sun 10th Aug, Lauriston Castle

The challenge is to navigate around the controls in the Maze and those in the surrounding park, quickly and cleanly. The fastest runner may not be the most accurate. It’s entertaining for the spectators and makes a very welcoming, sociable, fun event which everyone can enjoy.
