The race takes place over quiet B roads in Strathearn, starting and finishing at the Cultybraggan Camp just outside Comrie.
The route initally heads south west up Glen Artney before a turn back to the east and then south on the B827 towards Braco. This stretch of the route gets up to a height of nearly 800ft. Just after the water station at the 10 mile mark, the route joins the A822 north for a short stretch before carrying on along the route of the old Roman road, and then joining quiet back roads into the southern edges of Crieff. At the 18.5 mile mark, the route turns west along the South Earn Road to Comrie, before heading back up Glen Artney to Cultybraggan.
