Walk the route, race hard or just jog round. The average finishing time for runners is 2.5 hours and 6 hours for walkers. The course is clearly way-marked and there will be a hot drinks station with stunning light effects at the halfway point. Total ascent over the course is 600m. At the finish, hot coffee and tea awaits: well deserved after tackling 15 miles of trails and tracks through the dark Scottish forest!
