To help reduce traffic/parking congestion in Tyndrum, we will be operating a car share rule for long stay race day parking. Single occupancy vehicles will not be allowed access to event parking in Tyndrum.


We are trying to reduce the environmental impact of the event and are trialling an opt-out system for runners to choose what race stuff they would like to receive or not receive.  You can choose on the entry form whether you would like to receive the following items:  race t-shirt, finishers medal, buff and event sticker. 

T-SHIRT:  If you choose to not get a t-shirt then you have the options of either donating the £5 to charity or receiving a £5 reduction in the entry fee.

MEDAL, STICKER AND BUFF:  If you would not like to receive any of these items then the cost of them will be donated to charity.  The costs for the 3 items are:  Buff £2 / Medal £1.50 / Sticker £1.00.

All proceeds will be donated to Lochaber Foodbank.
