Setting off from the stunning town of Dunoon the long and medium routes stay together all the way to the first feed.

From the off you are on the amazing coast road by the side of Holy Loch which takes you a flat 5 miles to Dalinlongart where the climbing begins.

Just a 1.4miles of ascent at 3.3% average (9.8%max) will ease you gently before dropping down to Loch Striven.

At 12miles in another cheeky climb which takes you almost 2miles up maxing out at 16% but again this is just a warm up before you reach Bealach Maim which is 2miles at 9% (18%max).

So that is your first 20miles out of the way we will give you some respite along the coast from Otters Ferry to all the way to the feed station at Strachur and its here the medium and long routes split.

From the feed the long route turns right and continues up the coast to The Tinkers Heart where it heads inland where you immediately hit the climbs of Hells Glenn and Rest and be Thankful. From here the climbing eases and you continue on your loop back to Strachur for a second feed before a stunning scenic return to Dunoon taking in Lock Eck a little hop OVER to Loch Long and its coast all the way to the finish and well deserved medals.

Fancy a challenge?

The GTR Return to life Race Team will be starting the event, they are doing same route but are going to be riding at race pace, you are welcome to join them if you can keep up that is!
