Glenfarg Railway Tunnels

This isn’t a complete route per se but more of an interesting place to run that can easily be visited as part of various different possible routes. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve been through the tunnels now, but last weekend I went back to take a few pictures and share themContinue reading “Glenfarg Railway Tunnels”

There and Back Again…

Not “… A hobbit’s tale, by Bilbo Baggins”, but rather the Ochil 100 – both directions along the Ochil 50 route back-to-back 🤪 Julie had run (and won) the Ochil 50 last year so I’ll spare you the blow-by-blow route description (re-read her post if you’re looking for route info) and just give you aContinue reading “There and Back Again…”

ButContinue reading “Loch Ness 24 2023”

It sounded just likeContinue reading “By Way of the Glen”

Interview: Béné & Jeep

One of the best parts about volunteering at Cape Wrath Ultra earlier this year was getting to see all the competitors achieving (or even exceeding) their own goals as the event went on. For some it was a solo journey, while for others they buddied up out on the route. One pair that I sawContinue reading “Interview: Béné & Jeep”
