Description of Event:

A 105 mile adventure endurance race across the Highlands of Scotland, this is a truly epic adventure with 2 choices of entry:

Expert Category - the 105 miles in a single day

Challenger Category - the 105 miles split into 2 days, with the stopover at Fort Augustus

Starting from Nairn on the east coast, this is an adventure race that is made up of run, bike, kayak, hike elements that takes you through the beautiful highlands over road, trail, singletrack and water to the west coast finish near Glencoe.

The event has been running since 2011 and the organisation,support and information from signing up are informative and accurate.

The single day event is for those looking for a big challenge, with cut off times enforced for safety reasons. The two day event is a big challenge but is certainly achievable for most (with training!) and offers a great way to take on a multi-day, multi format event.

Location of Event: Nairn, Cawdor Castle, Loch Ness, Glen Nevis, Glen Coe

Next Event Date: 9th - 10th September 2017

Cost: Range from £180 to £270 depending on timing of booking.
