We are pleased to announce that for 2024 we will, again, be holding two races of approximately 15k (9 miles) and 5k (3.1 miles) respectively. The races are scheduled to take place on Sunday 11th February 2024 with the 15k starting at 11:00 am and the 5k starting at 11:05 am. Both will be run under UK Athletics Rules and Licences from Scottish Athletics.

In the event that severe weather, or other external factors outwith our control, causes us to cancel the Devilla trail races on 11th February, we have contingency plans in hand to hold the races on 18th February instead.  Refunds (less admin fees) will only be made if the races are completely cancelled for 2024.


Both races start and finish in the grounds of the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan, Kincardine but the majority of both routes is within Devilla Forest itself.

Full details of each route can be found on the website. The routes are suitable for ordinary trainers or trail shoes, but not spikes but runners should be aware that underfoot conditions can vary considerably.

The courses will be marshalled and well-marked at all junctions. The safety of all is paramount and runners must follow the instructions of the marshals at all times.

Devilla Forest is a working forest and, as such, any work taking place may affect parts of the race routes. In the event that beforehand, or even on race day itself, we need to amend either or both routes, for example if adversely affected by weather or underfoot conditions, any changes will be notified to entrants as soon as known. Please check our website ( and Facebook page ( for the latest information.

Dogs are not permitted in either race.


The entry fees are £15.00 (£17.00 for non-SA members) for the 15k and £10.00 (£12.00 for non-SA members) for the 5k. Runners must be at least 17 years old to enter the 15k race and at least 13 years old to enter the 5k race.

You can find details of our race privacy notice and race terms and conditions and further information on the events on our website (

The races are strictly pre-entry only through EntryCentral. There are no entries on the day.

On receiving an email to confirm their entry to the race, runners should check that their entry details are correct, and advise the Race Director if any details need to be amended. No changes can be made after Wednesday 7th February 2024.


We do not offer refunds to entrants who are no longer able to run. We do not allow entrants to transfer their race place to someone else if the race is fully subscribed and there are runners on the waiting list. Transfers can only take place with the Race Director’s permission.

Before entering, please make sure that you are available to run on 11th February should we need to reschedule the event to that date. Entry fees (less the EntryCentral admin fee) will only be refunded if the races are completely cancelled for 2024. There will be no deferrals.


There are race limits of 700 runners for the 15k and 200 runners for the 5k. Entries will close once the race limits are reached.


Runners must collect their race numbers, which include a timing chip, from 9.00 am on the day from the Registration Area located in the Assembly Hall within the Scottish Police College


Ample car parking is available within the grounds of the Scottish Police College. Anyone attending the race (runners or supporters) must only enter the Police College by the main entrance and follow the marshals’ directions. They should not follow any Sat Nav directions through Devilla Forest as these routes are unsuitable for cars and upset local residents.


Changing, showering and toilet facilities are available at the Recreation Hall.

The organisers accept no responsibility for the loss of clothing or equipment and it is the responsibility of runners to make sure they have all their belongings before leaving the race venue.


We will have water and post-race snacks at the finish for runners.

There is a Starbucks cafe, situated next to the registration area which will be open to all from 9.00am until 2.00pm.


We donate part of the proceeds of the event to a local charity (or charities) chosen by club members.


We have an extensive range of prizes in all age categories for both races. Prizes will be allocated strictly in age categories.

Once again, we have been very fortunate to have secured sponsorship from Run4It, Edinburgh. All entrants to both the 15K and 5K will receive a Run4It discount voucher.  Please check out their website:


Both races are chip timed and the full race results will be available on the Carnegie Harriers website ( shortly after the event finishes.


Runners are strongly advised not to attend if they are feeling unwell or displaying any of the documented symptoms of Covid-19.
