Round Arran Relays

Date: Sat 23rd July 2011

If you are interested in doing the above race please let me know. If there is enough interest we will hire a minibus and camp overnight on the Saturday. It is possible to get there and back in a day-the race starts at approx. 12 o’clock. All legs are run at the same time i.e. not as a true relay. The race is on Saturday 23rd July so we leave Livingston at 7am for the ferry from Ardrossan, usually returning by about 7.30pm the following day. Let me know if you are interested.

Available Legs                                                                                  Comments

Stage 1 North Blackwaterfoot to Pirnmill        11.5 miles         Flat, mostly follows   coast

Stage 2 North Pirnmill to Bogullie Car Park    10.5 miles      “Worst” leg of all, mostly uphill

Stage 3 North Bogullie to Brodick                    10 miles           Mostly downhill, then flat

Stage 1 South Blackwaterfoot to Kilmory        7.5 miles        Nice leg, undulating, fab views

Stage 2 South Kilmory to Whiting Bay            8.5 miles     Couple of uphills early on, then downhill

Stage 3 South Whiting Bay to Brodick            8.5 miles    Very long uphill on this leg, then downhill!

Please let me know if you wish to run, if you have a preference as to which leg and whether or not you would like to use the minibus and camp. If camping, we usually have dinner in a local pub and communally buy all breakfast food etc.
