Three awesome helicopter simulator packages are up for grabs in the 15 mile trail race at Run Balmoral 2022 (April 23-24).

The exciting prizes are being offered by race sponsor, Bristow, who operate a world class simulator facility at the company’s Dyce HQ in Aberdeen.

The 15 mile trail race follows a spectacular route, starting and finishing in view of Balmoral Castle  and taking in the Ballochbuie pine forest before skirting round the base of Lochnagar. It attracts participants from a wide variety of backgrounds, from top internationals to more casual runners. But everyone is given the same enthusiastic and warm Balmoral welcome.

All those who sign-up for the 15 mile trail race before midnight on January 31, 2022 will be entered into a random draw and one lucky winner will receive a one-hour flight simulator package for themselves and a friend. On top of that,the same prize will be awarded to the first man and woman to finish the race, which takes place on Sunday April 24, 2022.

Matt Rhodes, Bristow Director UK Oil & Gas, said: “We’re thrilled to be offering participants the chance to experience flying a helicopter at our unique simulator facility in Aberdeen as part of ongoing support of Run Balmoral.

“Our range of advanced simulators are an essential training tool for our pilots and use full motion technology, combined with realistic visuals to replicate the experience of flying in a variety of locations and weather conditions.

"We’re looking forward to welcoming the winners to our premises in Dyce for this one-of-a-kind experience.”

The Bristow 15 mile trail run is one of a series of races held over the Run Balmoral weekend when up to 5,000 competitors of all ages are expected to take part in the varied programme of events. It’s a real family occasion with children’s and adult races. And there are plenty of fun activities in the Event Village.
