Welcome to the Cateran 55 Trail Race
This year we have extra value with an added 3 miles to the route!
58 miles/93 kilometers and 7450ft/2250m ascent. You have 15.5 hours to complete.
Race starts at 6.30am, Saturday 14th August 2021 and there is a limit of 100 places.
Hopefully you'll find all the info you need about the race on our website, but if not please feel free to email me.
This year's race will be held adjacent to the Dalmunzie Hotel, Spittal of Glenshee, registration is from 5am, race starts 6.30am and you have 15 hours 30mins to finish. It's a circular route, starting and finishing next to the Dalmunzie Hotel and approximately 90% off road - made up of forest tracks, rough tracks, bog, mud, heather and beautiful scenery in a spectacular rural setting. There's roughly 10% tarmac which is mainly backroads where you might be (un)lucky to see a vehicle or two. The last few miles are a treat, climbing over the An Lairig pass with a steep tough run down to The Spittal of Glenshee then a wee mile and a half jog/sprint/sufferfest up the singletrack road to the finish and your well deserved baked tattie!
This year we will also have live tracking so your friends and family can follow your race.
Parking is available at the start with toilets, sorry no showers. You can camp in the field or stay in your camper for £10 for the weekend pay on the day. There is also Gulabin bunkhouse 1.5 miles down the road or the Dalmunzie hotel next to us.
In bad weather all runners may have to 'Pair Up' at any stage at the discretion of the race director.
