Starting at midnight, you will slip into the cool, dark waters of Loch Morlich. The swim course is a circuit, starting and finishing at the same point on the beach. The furthest point out is 90m from the beach but trust us, 90 meters out, in 50 foot deep ink black water will be very, very interesting…..
Transitioning at T1, at the Hayfield, near the Beach Hub at Loch Morlich, you will ride through the dark, silent, snaking tarmac roads of Speyside and finish with the brutal switchback climb at the base of Cairn Gorm. This is a tough end to the cycle.
From the car park at the Cairngorm Ski Centre (T2), you will climb to the exposed mountain summit of Cairn Gorm, back down through Glenmore Forest, past the Green Loch to the Ryvoan Bothy, up and over Meall a’ Bhuachaille and down to finish back where you started at the Beach Hub.
