The Alex Brett Memorial Cioch Mhor Hill Race will be held on 9th October 2021. The race is a 14km long "out and back" with approx. 660m of ascent.  While much of the route follows a fixed line (which must be adhered to!) there is a significant descent / ascent where runners can choose their own trajectory.  The course threads a trail from the bustling metropolis of Dingwall up and over farmland before crossing the Abhainn Sgitheach (Hawthorn River) and out into the wilds.  Beinn Uais (Ben Wyvis - I've found a few translations - "Awesome Mountain" is a favourite), which dominates the horizon, looms large over proceedings providing the perfect backdrop.  

A few wee changes are likely ... registration, start & finish will be in the field (the one with the stile at the top) to avoid everyone spreading covid in the leisure centre or packed together on the track behind the castle. Prizegiving might be a tall order as there will be a ton of results to process and while hanging around in a warm games hall is one thing, hanging around a field in October is quite another.

The Junior race route is also an "out and back" with the turning point at the trig point on Cnoc a' Bhreacaich (Speckled Hill ? Answers on a postcard please).  There will be a kit check at the start, please have everything with you...

Mandatory kit

Waterproof jacket with attached hood, waterproof trousers, hat, gloves, map of the course, compass and whistle.
