RUN, RIDE AND KAYAK 105 MILES ACROSS THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS 14TH-15TH SEPTEMBER 2019
For over 10 years, intrepid #ratracers have been taking on our original Scottish adventure race and falling in love with the wild hills of the Highlands. This breathtaking 105 mile route takes in some of the most mysterious and wild locations in Scotland, run bike and kayak* past the historic Cawdor Castle, the legendary Loch Ness and the mountainous Glen Nevis and Glen Coe. This unforgiving Highland terrain and weather breeds tough folk and when you sign up to Coast to Coast you’ll find out why. Experience all the beauty and brilliance that Scotland has to offer in this epic journey over one day or two.
*Optional for Challengers (2 days) to undertake at end of Day One to practice for longer kayak on Day Two.
We use an online resource alongside some real-life measuring to record distances as accurately as possible and these are as accurate as we will publish. There will always be some variation on the ground. Also, the route and therefore the distance are subject to change right up until (as well as during the day of) the event. We will endeavour to make you aware of any major changes in advance; however it may not be possible to share some minor changes as they occur. Please understand that all distances are therefore, by their nature, as exact as we can make them but can never be truly accurate to the metre.

THINK YOU’VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO
COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE IN ONE DAY?
Not for the faint hearted. The one-day challenge is a mammoth undertaking. Especially if the prevailing wind tries to blow you back to the start line. Bike selection and your nutrition plan are very important to give you the best chance of completion. Our cut offs are fixed and mandatory kit is key. You will be taking on a very challenging mountain run after a draining cycle ride, not to mention the kayaking. Successful finishing times on the one Day Expert class range from 8 hours 19 minutes in calm conditions to 13 hours 32 minutes in heavy weather.
TAKING ON THE TWO-DAY CHALLENGE?
Most participants take on the Coast to Coast challenge over two days and join us overnight to camp at Fort Augustus. Breaking up the challenge makes this more achievable and allows you to enjoy a cracking weekend out with some mates. Don’t forget to get your camping passes in advance of the event, which you can buy here.
THIS IS A WILD EVENT IN UNFORGIVING TERRAIN. PLEASE NOTE THAT CUT-OFF TIMES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. SEE FAQS FOR MORE INFORMATION.
