Runners will then descend to Mid Hill and continue descending to a checkpoint about halfway down the ridge (CP3). The route then heads steeply downhill to a checkpoint at a river bend (CP4). Runners are then faced with a sting in the tail back to the summit of Beinn Dubh 642m (CP5) and a fast descent back down the track they climbed at the start.
