If you fancy working up a sweat whilst enjoying your favourite tipple, Scotland’s first gin run is arriving this autumn and it looks set to be a whole lot of fun.

Taking place on October 26, this gin-credible event lets you enjoy four different gins and cocktail along its 5km route.

You can walk, jog or run the route, which takes place across the Archerfield estate in East Lothian.

The event is organised by Archerfield Walled Garden with featured gins including perfect picks from Eden Mill, The Old Curiosity Distillery, Fidra Gin and the Holyrood Distillery available at each 1k marker along the way.

There’s no medals given out for timed runs but you do get to enjoy your very own gin cocktail when you reach the finish line!

Plus, every entrant will receive a goody bag, and there’s even more socialising available at the end of the race.

A spokesperson for the North Berwick estate said: “Step away from the FitBit – it’s not that kind of run. Gather like minded friends and assemble for a run like no other.

Additionally there will be a DJ and pizzas from Big Blu in the Archerfield Estate courtyard plus all of the gin distillers will be there to chat about their gin.

If you’re not much of a runner Scotland gin run is still for you. Feel free to go along to the event and meet the gin makers who will be setting up their shops. You can also enjoy Archerfield Walled Garden’s trails, walks, cafe, shop and children’s play area.

Tickets for those registering online ahead of the run (and before the 19th Oct) will be £25 per person, while those waiting until the day of the run will be charged £30.
