recent coasters


Every finisher in the Race and in the Challenge receives a stylish drinks coaster, the design being slightly different each year.
These mementoes have been getting handed out since 1991, so regular participants have by now built up an impressive collection.

Race Trophies

There are 2 main trophies —
a Race trophy and a Women's trophy.

These consist of pieces of volcanic lava from Arthur's Seat.
