Usually blessed with good weather, its timing at the beginning of May does mean that there may be a variety of conditions - consult the forecast before your journey ... and don't forget the midge repellant as well as your mandatory equipment. There will be an up-to-date forecast of local conditions right up to the start on this web site in the Stop Press section opposite.
You can register in the Inn at Strathyre Hotel at the South end of the village from 10:30am - 12:30pm, admission fee is £7. The race is well marked all the way to the top; (note that there are no maps available); stewards and water stations are aplenty and well supported by the local community. Renowned for its plentiful supply of water all along its 22k (courtesy of our new sponsors, ASDA and Bookers), jelly babies and chocolate, rumours that some runners actually put on weight during the race are to be treated with caution! Even though our new sponsors, Lomond Distilleries, are giving a bottle of spirits to the top 3 runners in each category, they drew the line at dispensing whisky at the water stops!
