Based in malt whisky country, the Ben Rinnes Hill Race is an out and back to Ben Rinnes, the dominant hill in Dufftown, passing the rounded summits of Little and Meikle Convals on the outward and return journeys.
The most straightforward and runnable of the Scottish Long Classic hill races.
Good terrain and easy route-finding most of the way. The only rough heathery section is between Meikle Conval and the road crossing.
Normally part of the Dufftown Highland Games but will be happening in their absence this year. There will still be a lap of the sports field at the start and finish though!
