Starting at midnight, you will slip into the cool, dark waters of Loch Morlich. The swim course is a 4-loop 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 is very, very interesting…..
Transitioning at T1, near the Beach Hub at Loch Morlich, you will then ride through the dark, silent, snaking tarmac roads of Speyside, watching for wildlife on the way and finishing with the brutal switchback climb at the base of Cairn Gorm. This is a very tough end to the cycle and it brings you to T2.
From T2 (the car park at the Ski Centre), 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, where you will collect your unique STARMAN medal.
We truly believe that anyone can take the STARMAN on – but don’t underestimate the challenge.
You will need the right training to complete the event. Contact us if you have any questions.
