September 2015.
This year they had a team relay which I got the chance to be a part of. I have no idea what to expect from the race but was pleasently surprised! A fantastically well organised event with huge effort from all the event staff and supporters. The whole event felt like a running festival with everyone camped out in the tent area ready to supplie their runners with fuel, music playing and BBQs out in the sunshine! This year we were part of the 24hour relay which was amazing fun and had a great team spirit, it also gave us the chance to (hopefully) spur on some of the solo runners by chatting as we went past. Next year I definetly will be returning solo and hopefully I will also hear the 100 mile horn fire!

Sept 2015. Great Weather.
Awesome event. Well organised with some great positive people as RD and volunteers. Didn't make the Friday night pre-race get together, but it sounds like I missed out on a great laugh. Cowboys and Indians was the theme.
Safe event to run my first 12hr ultra, with a good underfoot 4 mile trail loop which brings you back to your support crew and your table of food, clothes and tent if you want a sleep!
Campsite so bring your own tent etc, but there are hotels near by.
Great information via race pack and facebook page.
Goody bag of t-shirt and medal and a bottle of cider, what more do you want! oh yip some Scottish biscuits, crackers and oak cakes washed down with some Irn-bru.
Toilets, hot and cold water and the opportunity to meet some amazing people. I didn't run till dawn and see the sun rise but the sunset was great. The views from the top of the hill down to the loch fired you on for another lap.
Would I do it again.
Yes, next year I want to hear the 100 mile hooter when I cross the line and hear the congratulations and noise from fellow runners and everyone there watching. See you there.
