Bloody Marvellous. I'm an Ever present at this race so after 5 years it's evolved into a Beast! Great Organisation, Fantastic Marshalls and Volunteers every year. Stunning route and scenery, great value for money, Medal, t-shirt and beer....what else could you ask for?!!! Ultra Runners are the friendliest folk around and help, support and encourage each other from start to finish.Killinn albeit a small village, is a perfect race base venue with the locals being very friendly, eager to help and welcoming to the small army that invades it once a year. Bring on number 6!!

Second time at running this event, last time it started in Strathyre, this time in Killin. BAM, the organisers, never fail to put on a fantastic event, and this one was no different. Pre race communications, race day slickness and post race food and entertainment were all spot on. The route is a mix of forestry tracks and Tarmac, with around 2800ft of ascent and descent, it's a perfect race for an introduction to ultras. It was my first in 2013! The route ia like a history tour with the falls of Dochart in Killin next to the burial ground of the McNab clan, to the Glen Ogle viaduct, to Rob Roy Macgregor's burial place. Fabulous part of the country. The race marking was superb and marshals were plenty offering encouragement and drop bag help. Overall, a brilliant race, organised by brilliant race directors, marshalled by the friendliest of people and in a gem of an area in Scotland.

Event was well organised with full route markings throughout, bag drops and lots of food at the end! Surface ranged from forestry tracks to tarmac, with a small amount of ascent. The base village, Killin, is also great for places to stay, eat and drink. This is a race I'll definitely do again in 2016.
