A 50K OR 60K ULTRA

THE RACE

ABOUT THE EVENT

The route will start and finish at the Cultybraggan camp just outside Comrie and follow the old railway line on the north shore of Loch Earn and then round to the South Loch Earn Road.

The climb up Ben Vorlich starts at Ardvorlich and goes straight up to 3232ft (985m). The path has been recently resurfaced and there is room to pass on the way up and on the way down. (for safety we may move the timing point down from the summit if needed)

We will have 3 checkpoints (CPs) but you will visit the one at the base of Ben Vorlich twice (one will be at the highest point and will be a timing point only).

There is a proportion of tarmac in this run, so shoe choice is tricky. We suggest leaving a change of shoes at the Ardvorlich CP.
