New start/finish location, and new route through forest since 2015
£7 on the day. Over 18.
The race starts with straightforward forest track running, before rougher ground that leads to a steep descent into Glen Ample.
Once across Glen Ample you've finally reached the base of the hill proper. A steep heathery slog up Beinn Each then gets you onto the start of the fantastic undulating ridge out to Stuc a`Chroin and back.
The crux of the route is the climb back out of Glen Ample on the return leg, and then you've still got a deceptively long run out along the forest tracks.
Very well supported race, with countless water stations, and flagged all the way to the summit and back.
