Date: Saturday 9th May 2020, starting 08:30, maximum time 10 hours.
Check-in: 07:00 to 08:15 at Tayinloan Village Hall.
As this is a bank holiday weekend, you can travel here on Friday 8th and stay 2 nights (advisable to book!)

An optional bus will run from Tarbert to the start at Tayinloan, picking up en route. You can book and pay when entering. The bus will leave at 07:00 from Tarbert, at the bus turning circle.

Drop-bags (containing your own personal food & drink etc) will be conveyed to the checkpoints at Clachan Village Hall and Skipness Village Hall. Please mark them clearly with your race number and place them in the marked vehicles just outside Tayinloan Village Hall. Drop-bags should be disposable as checkpoint marshals don’t generally come to the finish.

If you are unsupported, you can also hand in a bag/rucksack with change of clothes etc for the finish.

Body massage at the finish is included in your fee.

Free showers at finish.
