Route information
This exciting trail weekend returns to beautiful Blair Atholl in Perthshire for its fourth year. Set against the backdrop of the impressive Blair Castle, the races will start in the castle's grounds, which lie on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park. With a festival atmosphere, yoga classes, live music, an outdoor cinema and plenty of races to choose from, this is not one to miss out on.
Go for the ultimate challenge, with the 58k Full Tilt Ultra, or take on the 30k Dearg Up n' Doon, both taking place on the Saturday. On Sunday, the 13k Banvie Burn, the 7k Diana's Grove and the Kids' Fun Run will take place.
Depending on your chosen distance, you'll either loop around past Hercules Gardens and back to the start, fork off up the winding Glen Tilt or head toward the 1009m high summit of Ben Dearg.
