About the event
Run Ride and Kayak 105 miles across the Scottish Highlands - why not stop overnight with us at The Highland Club in Fort Augustus?
For over 10 years, intrepid #ratracers have been taking on our original Scottish adventure race and falling in love with the wild hills of the Highlands. This breathtaking 105 mile route takes in some of the most mysterious and wild locations in Scotland, run bike and kayak* past the historic Cawdor Castle, the legendary Loch Ness and the mountainous Glen Nevis and Glen Coe. This unforgiving Highland terrain and weather breeds tough folk and when you sign up to Coast to Coast you’ll find out why. Experience all the beauty and brilliance that Scotland has to offer in this epic journey over one day or two.
COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE IN ONE DAY?
Not for the faint hearted. The one-day challenge is a mammoth undertaking. Especially if the prevailing wind tries to blow you back to the start line. Bike selection and your nutrition plan are very important to give you the best chance of completion. Our cut offs are fixed and mandatory kit is key. You will be taking on a very challenging mountain run after a draining cycle ride, not to mention the kayaking. Successful finishing times on the One Day challenge range from 8 hours 19 minutes in calm conditions to 13 hours 32 minutes in heavy weather.
TAKING ON THE TWO-DAY CHALLENGE?
Breaking up the challenge makes this more achievable and allows you to enjoy a cracking weekend out with some mates. Don’t forget to arrange your overnight accommodation around Fort Augustus in advance of the event.
