Route information
This adventure covers the distance between John O'Groats in the north of Scotland and Land's End in western Cornwall, amounting to 17 days around 860 miles of running. The route is almost all on road - amendments are made each year to ensure that busy routes are avoided, allowing runners to really enjoy this event.

56 miles of running will take participants from Aviemore into Perthshire, where they will conclude the leg in Pitlochry.
Day 5
The route for the fifth day is a stretch of 55 miles from Pitlochry to Dunfermline in Fife.

Covering just over 50 miles, runners will leave Dunfermline, heading past Edinburgh, and reach the Scottish borders. This leg will finish in the town of Selkirk.

On the seventh day of the challenge, runners will cross the border into England and reach Carlisle. This section will consist of 55 miles of running.
Day 8
Beginning in Carlisle, runners will head through the Lake District, concluding their 56 miles of running in Burton-in-Kendal.

Day 17
The final day of the event covers a short distance of 19 miles, with runners heading through the beautiful Cornish countryside to their final destination of Land's End.
It is important that the organiser gains an early understanding of the group of entrants each year. From Day 1 they look to offer check-points at 8 mile intervals. However, this is usually extended in distance by the request of runners. That said, if just one runner needs extra support, they will be there to assist them.

Cut-Off times
This is an extremely challenging event which few will be able to complete, therefore cut-off times have been set in advance.

This is for the first 10 days and if you fall behind you will be given a warning, and if the next day is also below 4 mph you will be withdrawn from the event.
The final 7 days will have some flexibility on the 4 mph limit, at the discretion of the race director. Runners will not be allowed to run after 22:00 on days 1-16.
