Description

13.1 miles of natural trails:- Rough, tough, muddy, steep, exhilarating and in a class of it’s own!! Not for the faint hearted this route is something else. The lung busting ascents are worth every minute for the technical trail heaven that lies high above the Muckle Toon. Route Description/Find Out more.

The route begins at Basecamp and heads directly towards the town centre. To the sound of bagpipes you will begin a memorable 1.6 mile ascent of Whita Hill to the obelisk above. The descent is fast, technical and exposed over open moorland, returning you to the valley floor and a brief interlude before another sharp climb away from the banks of the river Esk. The remaining miles encompass short, but steep, ascents with continued rough and technical terrain on descent.

The route includes three drink stations however it is recommended that runners carry fluid and energy supplies as the demands of the course do not let up until you cross the finish line. The route is way-marked and marshalled throughout and first aid is provided by the exceptional Moffat Mountain Rescue Team. All pre-paid participants receive a limited edition MTAF Buff & Medal!
