On the day
Registration opens at 7.30am at Cultybraggan Camp, Comrie
Race start time: 9.00am
Start and finish at Cultybraggan
The route follows predominantly undulating B roads on the south side of Strathearn. Roads will not be closed, and runners are asked to be aware of traffic. The course will be well marshalled and well signposted.
Any runners who have to abandon the race must make their presence known to their nearest marshal, who will arrange any medical help and transport back to the finish.
Entrants should be able to complete a 'flat' marathon in under 5 hours. For a range of practical reasons, the race is organised and resourced to take place within a six hour time frame. That means that after six hours the event is officially closed and any runners still on the course cannot rely on the continuing availability of race officials, marshals, water stations or finishing line facilities. Transport back to the finish will be provided.
There will be seven water points at approximately 3, 7.5, 10.5, 14, 18.5, 21.5 and 24 miles. See the route map for the locations of the water stations.
Individual marathon finishers will all receive a medal and a goody bag including a technical t-shirt. We will do our best to provide your preferred size of t-shirt but cannot guarantee this. Relay team runners will receive a medal and have the option to order a t-shirt at additional cost.
Thanks go also to Crieff Hydro Hotel and The Famous Grouse Experience for their support. The race is supported by Run 4 It, Scotland's leading specialist running shop and by Graham and Finlayson of Crieff. Water at the water stations and at the finish is provided by Highland Spring.
