There will be toilets in the start/finish area.

This race is cupless, meaning that whilst we will provide water at the designated water station, we will not be giving out plastic cups to reduce our waste. Our marshals will be happy to fill your own bottles or cups with water during the race.

If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact the organisers. We can be contacted through the Bennachie Ultra website and through the Bennachie Ultra Facebook page, or via email.

 

Total distance. 

Well that's up to the runner, there is a 4.3 mile loop, you run it as often as you want/can in 8 hours.

No entry conditions apply. If you are old enough and daft enough then you are ok.

Support. You don't need any, a drop bag facility will be available at the start/finish area. We will also supply water here and have a refreshment area at the halfway point for re-supplying water.

 

Cut offs - Apart from the one's in your head, there are none.

Kit requirements. Because it is Scotland and because the race is in May the weather can be very changeable, due to this there will be a minimum kit requirement of hat, gloves, full waterproofs (jacket and trousers) and a foil blanket.  No kit = no race, no exceptions. You don't want to be sitting at the side of the course in your simmit and short shorts in the oorlich getting drookit and crabbit.
