Location: Start Back Lane Finish Loftus Hill

Record times have been set very rarely, testament to the nature of the challenge. The current record, held by John Campbell, stands at 1:08:02 and was set in 2016.

Entry, which is optional, is restricted to those boys and girls in the Sixth Form or any pupil who has reached the age of 16 on September 1st of the preceding year.

A new training course, covering a similar route to the actual race course, was introduced in 2005 to give pupils more opportunity to train for the event and to familiarise themselves with the course. All boys and girls must complete this within a set qualifying time to be eligible for the actual race.

Race day itself is a major event in the School Calendar and vast numbers of pupils, parents and Old Sedberghians line the route. Medals are presented at the finish and all runners are invited on stage at the evening’s Wilson Run concert to round off the occasion.
