Dumyat Hill Race

The Dumyat Hill Race is the University of Stirling's flagship running event, and a popular fixture on the Scottish hill running calendar. We are delighted that the Dumyat Hill Race is back in 2022 and will take place on Wednesday 11 May 2022 (17:30 - 21:30 BST).

This race provides a fun, challenging event set around our beautiful campus. The Dumyat Hill Race doubles as the Scottish Student Sport Hill Running Championship and Scottish Hill Running Race. This race has become a great tradition and a bucket list event for all University of Stirling students and staff. Now in its 47th year, we invite you all to take the challenge and get involved!
