You can check out our promotional video for the event to give you a taste of the scenery you will encounter, all we can say is it is very special and we know it will inspire you to complete this challenging course.

Imagine challenging uphills rewarded with downhills allowing you to take in some of the best views in Scotland, run alongside the river Feshie and let it's power drive you forward, run past wild horses and through forest trails. As your body works, let your mind escape!
