The Santoft trails are sand based and provide a great all-weather surface during autumn and winter. The forest creates a micro-climate, which is warmer, sheltered and dry, so don’t worry about the weather. The relay track is at Scott’s Ferry, 19km from Bulls. See how to get there at the bottom of the page. Each lap is around 5km (15-20min) with a few moderate climbing sections, nothing more than 6-8 metres per climb.
