The Killin Santa Dash starts at the Falls Of Dochart Inn, crosses the Dochart Bridge then heads down Main Street and past the McLaren Hall. Runners then take a left turn on to the patch of grass between the Astroturf pitch and Dall Lodge. They will then complete a lap of the park, with the race finishing next to the playpark. During the event, the Dochart Bridge will be closed to traffic and marshalled by the police and volunteers. Participants will be instructed to run on the pavement after they cross the Bridge.
The Crianlarich Santa Dash (provisional route) starts and finishes outside the play park next to the Crianlarich Youth Hostel. Santas will first meet at the Primary School and walk along the main road all together, to the start at the play park. The route, which will be clearly marked, takes in many of the paths around Crianlarich Community Woodland, before returning to the finish at the playpark.
