The cut-offs are as follows:
1000 – Pit Stop 1, 16km
1300 – Pit Stop 2, 30km
1600 – Pit Stop 3, 46km
Cut-off times are applied to your departure from these locations and not your arrival.
In 2019, the first person crossed the line in just over 4 and a half hours and the final one did it in just under 10.
The start is on the Royal Mile. As this is a temporary location in middle of a very busy city there will be very few facilities at the start line. Please arrive with your drinks bottles pre-filled as there are NO taps at the start line. There are NO toilets at the start.
The finish line is at the Royal Commonwealth Pool. Everything you need to recover after your run is here. We’ll have a hot meal for you, your kit bag, and changing facilities with showers. The swimming pool is available for use with non-members able to use the facilities on a pay as you go basis.
For the finish: The nearest option is a car park to the rear of The Royal Commonwealth Pool that is available for public use on a first-come first-served basis.
There is a charge for both.
Mandatory Kit list: Windproof jacket (this may be upgraded to waterproof), 600ml of liquid, gloves, hat (Rat Rag/Buff is OK) fully charged phone, emergency bivvy and a roller bandage.
