Refund Policy:  No refunds



Parking in Tyndrum 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 at the race start.  There is short term for vehicles dropping off runners but these cars must leave Tyndrum after the race start. Runners with booked accommodation should park at the accommodation. To help with logistics we are arranging early morning buses from Fort William to the race start (extra cost).


We are trying to reduce the environmental impact of the event there is an opt-out system for runners to choose not to receive a t-shirt. 

T-SHIRT:  If you choose to not get a t-shirt then you have the options of either donating the £6 to charity or receiving a £6 reduction in the entry fee.

All proceeds will be donated to The Highlands Support Refugees.


1) Runners are allowed external support at certain locations.  Spectators are welcome at specific locations.

2) No support runners before Kinlochleven checkpoint at 11:30am.

3) All runners must carry an emergency foil blanket and charged/switched on mobile phone.

4) It is strictly FORBIDDEN for any participant to run in place of another runner. No one is allowed to run using another runner's race number.

5) No running poles. No dogs accompanying runners. No littering.

6) Limited earphone use allowed.

Inclusivity & Discrimination

The event is LGBT friendly. We are also QIA+ friendly. We're friendly to everyone, really. You can enter our race as female, male, or non-binary. If you are transgender, we are happy for you to enter and run in the gender category you identify with. Event changing, showers and toilets will be available for all genders. We are fully committed to upholding all principles of the Scottish LGBT Sports Charter.

The events strives to be as inclusive as possible and the organisers have a zero tolerance policy to any form of discrimination.
