Trail Race Information 2022

2021 Dechmont Law Trail Races

“The Dechmont Trail Race is one of many run routes created by Martin Hyman. There are others throughout Scotland including the Cockleroy Chaser and the World Mountain Running Championships.  No one route might claim to be The Martin Hyman Run and Martin’s modesty would have vetoed such a title. So we invite you to enjoy A Martin Hyman Run. The crucial question is ‘Did you enjoy it?'”
