You may hear the echo of his jowly laughs as you scale the scree or wonder when the finish line will appear whilst you are well into your 14th kilometre. Join us with your head-torch and be part of the incredible stream of light that flows through these Scottish hills. Bring your own GPS watch and maybe, just maybe, you will unravel the riddle and uncover the true distance of ‘The Mighty,’ laying to rest the Legend of the Laird once and for all. Or you could just google it. Someone will have posted it on Strava.
DROP OFF: For pre-run drop off, follow the event signs from Innerleithen until the signs split for Car Park and Drop Off at the monument cross roads. The Drop Off signs will lead you to the small layby at the main gates to Traquair House (not the small gates to the event field) where you will see a security guard and the event village in the background. Please drop off promptly here and exit in the direction of Cardrona where you can re-join the A72. This gateway will be busy with our production traffic, support vehicles and other folk dropping off so please do not attempt to turn around.
PICK UP: After 18:30 on Saturday it is possible for cars to enter the event Car Park for no charge in order that you can park your car and go to meet up with runners. Please follow our signage and marshals advice.
1. General Camping: This is a fenced area in the event village field. Each camper needs a camping ticket. Tents are pitched on a first-come first-served basis. Please leave fire lanes clear. We ask that your tents are not larger than 12×12 feet each (approx 3.5×3.5m). Space is limited so please keep this in mind when deciding what size tent to bring. NO COMMUNAL GAZEBOS PERMITTED. General camping will have its own dedicated toilets. Drinking water is available in the event village. Camping space is finite so we recommend you buy your camping pass as soon as possible. Book General Camping here.
2. The Old Walled Garden glamping and pre-pitched tents: The Old Walled Garden will be exclusive for those purchasing pre-pitched camping packages. This camping are benefits from shelter from the wind, its own dedicated Men’s and Women’s indoor flushing toilets, and access to the heated showers. Each pre-pitched tent package includes camping pass and parking ticket in the main event parking area. Some packages include heaters, in-tent plug sockets and bedding. See our packages here.
