The Simon Wake Comrie Hills Relay is a 42k relay race with 2,110m of ascent, run in 4 stages. The highly scenic course starts and finishes in Comrie village, and follows a route up and around the hills surrounding Glen Lednock. Legs 2 and 3 cover rough mountain terrain, while Legs 1 and 4, although challenging, are closer to trail races. Leg 1 is fully marked, and leg 4 is partially marked.

The race is dedicated to the memory of our friend and fellow Harrier Simon Wake who died aged 47 in October 2008 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. All proceeds from the race will be donated to the fight against this terrible disease.

 Race information

It is with regret and sadness that the race organising committee have come to the decision that we cannot go ahead with this year's race. We were hoping that guidance would move along to allow us to hold a race, albeit modified, that would be true to the race's ethos. We didn't want to make this decision but feel it unfair to leave it any longer. We hope to see you all in 2021.


- In 2020 the race was planned for Sunday 13th September. The provisional date for 2021 is Sunday 5th September. 

- Start time 10 am, with registration from 8.30 am
