An Explosive Venue
After a hugely successful first year in Scotland in 2015, Total Warrior returns to the stunning Balgone Estate just outside the capital, Edinburgh. We’re taking you a short hop, skip and a jump (or 30mins by train if you prefer to save your energy – you’ll need it!) from the city centre to the picturesque seaside harbour town of North Berwick. North Berwick boasts an explosive past and our course provides a reminder of that, set in the shadow of a great lump of volcanic rock called North Berwick Law.
Make a weekend of it
Participants will come from all over the World to compete in the Edinburgh event with thousands staying over for the post party then to sample the North Berwick or Edinburgh nightlife. Warriors have the option of the 12K course on Saturday 10th or Sunday 11th September 2016. Some of our hardcore Warriors will choose to do both days and take advantage of the 'Super 12' discount on offer. There is also a section which is timed separately, with the fastest male and female participants being crowned 'Sprint King/Queen'.Enter Now Volunteer
