PARKING / RACE WEEKEND LOGISTICS
Parking in Tyndrum (race start) is the event's biggest issue, especially during the peak tourist period in August. We have to keep local businesses on side so unless you have accommodation booked in Tyndrum for the Friday/Saturday evening there will be no long term parking in Tyndrum. There is short term parking at the race start for vehicles dropping off runners but these vehicles must leave Tyndrum immediately after the race start.
As the race is a point-to-point route we suggest one of the following plans:
STAY IN TYNDRUM BOTH FRIDAY & SATURDAY NIGHTS - Runners with booked accommodation should park at the accommodation and can book a return bus back to Tyndrum after the event on the Saturday at 6pm (extra cost)
STAY IN FORT WILLIAM ON FRIDAY & SATURDAY NIGHTS - Book the early Saturday early morning bus from Fort William to the race start in Tyndrum (extra cost). Then run back to Fort William. The early Saturday morning buses will leave from Glen Nevis Campsite and stop at Fort William Bus Station before heading to Tyndrum and will arrive in plenty of time for registration and race start.
ARRANGE TO BE DROPPED OFF AT START AND COLLECTED AT THE FINISH - This could be family/friend/club mate/support crew who drive you to the start in Tyndrum, maybe see you at Glencoe and Kinlochleven, then collect you from the finish in Fort William. Please note they must leave Tyndrum immediately after the race start. Another option is that the person who drops you off joins the race team and helps out while you run to Fort William.
Please also consider car-sharing if you can.
