The off road bike will then take on a challenging 13km cycle over a 2 lap course. Each lap takes in a descent of Harran hill. There will be some small technical sections (with rocks, roots and mud) but this will not to be to difficult or challenging (mainly blue with red sections such as the Harran hill descent).

The run then takes in a mixed terrain 5km course which circumnavigates the hilly Clune and an old ironage fort before coming back in by the loch side to the  finish.

The short distance (which is a good entry level distance) enjoys a 500 metre swim in the beautiful fresh water of Loch Ore with good safety cover within a friendly swimming environment. The swim will be 1 lap of 500 metres with a beach start. As this involves open water swimming in Scotland wetsuits are required!

The off road bike will then take on a 7km cycle which includes a descent of Harran hill. There will be some small technical sections (with rocks, roots and mud) but this will not to be to difficult or challenging (mainly blue with red sections such as the Harran hill descent).
