Cioch Mhor Hill Race - open for entries on SiEntries
Jan 28, 2020

https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?elid=Y&event_id=6536

The Alex Brett Memorial Cioch Mhor Hill Race will be held on 28th March 2020. The race is a 14km long "out and back" with approx. 660m of ascent. While much of the route follows a fixed line (which must be adhered to!) there is a significant descent / ascent where runners can choose their own trajectory. The course threads a trail from the bustling metropolis of Dingwall up and over farmland before crossing the Abhainn Sgitheach (Hawthorn River) and out into the wilds. Beinn Uais (Ben Wyvis - I've found a few translations - "Awesome Mountain" is a favourite), which dominates the horizon, looms large over proceedings providing the perfect backdrop.

Registration is at the Dingwall Leisure Centre from 10:00 to 11:15, and the tea / cake / banter / prizegiving is at the same location after the race. The Senior race starts at 12:00 sharp from just behind Tulloch Castle, and Juniors will start at 12:10 from the same place. The race start is a short walk up the hill from registration. The Junior race route is also an "out and back" with the turning point at the trig point on Cnoc a' Bhreacaich (Speckled Hill ? Answers on a postcard please). There will be a kit check at the start, please have everything with you...
