Leg maps and instructions

Download maps for all the legs here. All legs are runs by 1 runner - no paired legs this year. Map and compass may be needed on all legs.

Leg 1 11k, 527m ascent. Leg 1 is marked on good trails, but does cover remote ground and runners must be able to navigate.

Leg 2 7k, 400m ascent. Leg 2 covers rough ground without tracks and is not marked. At the request of the landowner, and to minimise disturbance to game birds, runners are asked not to recce Leg 2 after August 1st.

Leg 3 12.6k, 712m ascent. Leg 3 takes you most of the way up Ben Chonzie and is not marked. Navigation skills with map and compass may be needed. 

Leg 4 11k, 370m ascent. Leg 4 is partially marked and is run mainly on trails and paths.

An overview map showing the whole route and the positions and grid references of all the checkpoints is available here.

All runners must comply with the SHR safety code and race rules on clothing and equipment, which means carrying and appropriately using windproof full body cover, other body cover appropriate to the conditions on the day, map, compass and whistle.

The race takes place in a beautiful part of the country. For it to be sustainable, it is essential that landowners' property is treated with care and respect, no litter is left anywhere, and parking and behaviour generally show consideration for local residents and other visitors to the area.
