All You Need to Know about 2023
Saturday 13th May 2023 will see a return to the Tayinloan to Campbeltown section. The 35 mile route with 1351m climb is mainly on forest tracks and is described in detail here. There are two options, solo and three part relay with changeovers at Carradale and the south end of Lussa Loch.
Drop bags will be conveyed to these two checkpoints and a larger bag to the Finish at the Glengyle Distillery in Campbeltown where everything except showers will be available. For showers you’ll have to go over to the playing fields on the Green again.
Electronic timing and GPS tracking will be in operation and safety cover will again be provided by Oban Mountain Rescue.
Please read the rules here.
