New course this year! SNH don’t want us to go over the 300m contour because of capercaillie, so this year we are running round Cnoc Dubh rather than not quite going to the top. Apart from 1km of forest road at the start and finish the course is all on narrow paths through the woods. Mostly good running but there are the usual rough bits with a few fallen trees, brashings and wet holes to fall in.

The race starts and finishes at Cambus O’May forestry car park, on north side of the A93 mid way between Dinnet and Ballater. Registration and prize giving will be at the Riverside Cottage cafe, which is 100m west of the track into the forest. There is some parking here, but the forestry car park is only 300m away. The cafe will be serving teas, coffees, cakes and soup so bring some cash.

Runners will be required to have a good headtorch, and to carry full body cover, a map and compass (just in case they get lost in the woods at night in the middle of winter). A spare torch is also a really good idea.

If you think you will be coming to the race it would be very helpful if you could register in advance here: register This is free and does not imply any commitment, but will speed up the registration process and give us and the cafe some idea of how many runners there are likely to be. Pay when you collect your number.
