Meeting Point - Where and When:
The front entrance to Overton House at 09:00 - free car parking is available on site.
Overtoun House is off the north side of the A82 at Milton, about 2 miles east of Dumbarton. The turning onto Milton Brae is not signposted, so it's worth viewing online before travelling. Drive the full 1 ¼ miles up Milton Brae to find the car park.
Using SatNav? G82 2SH is the nearest postcode.

What to Bring:
Road running shoes should be fine, however it would be preferable to have a trail shoe - any road shoes should have a decent tread on them (ie not older, more worn-down soles)
In advance, check the forecast, you’ll potentially need a wind- or rain-proof jacket and water/ snacks as appropriate to your own needs for a 2 to 2.5 hour run.
