No, there are no cut off times for either distance. Participants will only be withdrawn from the event or asked not to continue for the following reasons:
Yes! Much of the route is on Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve, owned and managed for conservation and access by the National Trust for Scotland. As well as its stunning scenery the area is recognised as one of the most important sites for mountain plants in Britain, with many national rarities. National and international designations aim to protect the area and its special plant communities, but the fragile mountain vegetation is vulnerable to damage by repeated trampling. By sticking to the paths, not running on the verges or taking shortcuts, you can help stop the development of ever-widening scars on the landscape and safeguard the outstanding flora.
