      My first Ultra and what a fab experience!! Being new to ultra running I wasn't quite sure what to expect although I have particpated in a few 1/2 marathon trail races.This is the second year of this race and I had heard great reports about it and the BAM racing team who organise the event. The pre-race briefing that was emailed out a week earlier was comprehensive and inlcuded all relevenant information. Located bang in the middle of Scotland it is very remote with only 1 single track road in and out of one of Scotland's longest glens.  Logistics called for some pre-planning and I decided to stay in nearby Aberfeldy, about an hour's drive from the start. Although, if you wanted to camp or park up in a campervan there is plenty of room at the Dam. Facilities are very limited although portaloos are on site for the duration of the event.Registration and number collection was all very friendly and efficient. There was even a small selection of accessories for sale ( soft flasks, energy drinks, bars etc) plus a huge amount of home baking!Drop Bag point was at CP 2 which was also at the start/finish area so all very handy which saved time and meant I could look around in awe at the srooundings. The Race Briefing was, well brief ! It is impossible to go off piste as the first part of the course invloves following a land rover track around the side of the Loch Lyon, which is damned as part of large hydro electric complex. CP 1 was located at the opposite end of the Loch at mile 9. This part of the route is gently undualtiing with one or two water crossings which was gently cooling on the feet. Water and jelly babies were on offer along with shouts of encouragement to set us on our way back to the start/finish for CP 2 and the drop bag zone. From here the route followed a steep 2 mile climb up and over the a hill to Glen Lochay. At CP3 we leave the road and head onto another rocky estate track westwards to the head of Glen Lochay before descending  down onto a track that wiggles alongside the river. The final sting in the tale is the 3 mile climb back up the hill before the run down to the Dam at Glen Lyon! The marshalls at CP3 were just amazing and helped replenish water bottles and offer generous words of encouragement. They were obviously having a lot of fun.Crossing the finish line was a great achievement for me and I was rewarded with great applause and a goodie bag with T shirt, Medal, Bottle of Glen Lyon cider, mini bottle of Irn Bru and a Tunnocks caramel wafer. Whilst the majority of the route is on rough track there is small secion on road with a number of water crossings.The views are epic and you really appreciate the Highland Wilderness! In summary general awesomeness complemented by great organisation and fabulous weather.

      As my first ultra I chose one that was quite unique. Just beyond the edge of the world and then on a few miles. On the day I only saw 4 people that were not part of the race or race organisation. The volunteers on aid stations were on places that are easier reached on foot and visited by few people!The organisation by BaM racing is good humoured, low key and feels exceptionally professional and safe in very remote conditions. Ridiculously good value and great goodie bag and medal.Did I love it? YupWould I do it again? Hell yeah.More details in blog post: Glen Lyon Ultra Race Report
