At the finish, enjoy the event village where there will be cold beer and complementory lead Yoga sessions to help aid post run recovery. 

Due to the demanding elevation and terrain, this race is not for the faint hearted and runners should be of an experienced standard and aware of the risks associated with such a challenge.

10.30 Saturday 4th June 2022

The Dearg Up n' Doon takes quite a step up from the 2 shorter race options. 

Reaching heights of 1009m at the summit of Ben Dearg - one of the highest points in a wedge of high, exposed countryside that is situated between Glen Tilt to the east and the Pass of Drumochter to the west.  Runners will experience extensive views across the Cairngorm Mountains and the remote beauty of the Alt Schiecheachan Bothy. 

Following the exposed trail back down the mountainside, the route eventually rejoins the vast forests of Blairduachdar before snaking it's way through the dense pine, larch and birch woods and back to to the finish.
