Details: A relay race over 31 km consisting of 4 legs for teams of 6 (2 legs run in pairs). The race registration is in the Village Hall in the main car park in Falkland, commencing at 8.30 am. There are limited changing facilities and toilets at the Village Hall in Falkland, and none at the stage changeovers. After the finish, food and hot drinks will be available in Falkland Village Hall from 12.30 to 4.00 pm.

The race is run over the Lomond Hills in mid-winter and will require full body cover (waterproof top & bottoms, hat & gloves) to be carried or worn at all times. A map of the course (1:50,000 OS sheet No 58 and 59), mobile phone, compass and whistle must also be carried. There may be compulsory kit checks at each stage changeover and any team failing to comply will be disqualified. The race consists of 3 hill legs and one trail, leg 1. You will need some experienced runners who must be capable of navigation (especially legs 2, 3 & 4) in the hills in adverse weather. Short weather courses may apply in bad weather.

Although the checkpoint at the top of West Lomond is not manned, it is compulsory, and against the rules and spirit of the event if both runners do not summit. Any substantiated reports of such an occurrence will lead to disqualification of the entire team.

Entry: Postal entries only using the entry form (PDF format, MS Word format), strictly no entry on the day. If your predicted time is greater than 3 hours 45 minutes, please enter the early start. Closing date 21st January 2014.
