Overview

The variety of technical terrain at Glentress will challenge even the most seasoned MTB Marathon and Cross Country riders. 

As one of Scotland’s original trail centres, the ground may be rough going, but it’s hallowed too. New legends will fight their way up leg-burning climbs through dense fir wood forests, eventually giving way to breathtaking views of the Tweed Valley before swooping switchback descents with jumps, tabletops and fast flowing berms. 

The trails here are a crazy rush to ride and the same to spectate, so soak in every second of the action with us at Glentress.

Fun Facts!

The first trails were created some 20 years ago and have long been known to the mountain biking community as some of the finest in the world, but this is the first major international competition to be hosted here.

With over 80km of purpose-made trails and a nearby centre in Innerleithen, it’s the most visited tourist attraction in the Scottish Borders.

You can see as far as the Forth of Firth and even Edinburgh’s Arthur’s Seat from some truly magical viewpoints dotted around Glentress.

If bike-watching gets too stressful, bird-watching is also an option! If you’re lucky, you might spot ospreys soaring over the Tweed Valley from a specially built bird hide.
