Participants will be able to check their official time at the timing booth as soon as they finish. Soon after the event, all race results will be posted online and on social media.
Within the last mile of the event there is a river crossing. This is at most 30 metres depending on the water level. The crossing will be done by boat using a pulley system. Participants will be sat in a boat for the duration of the crossing and the pulleys will be operated by event staff. It is not possible to run across the river.
Massage will be available after the event at Monachyle Mhor Hotel by the wonderful Athletes’ Angels! A 15 minute massage costs £10. You can guarantee your massage by pre-booking via our shop. We’ll get in touch closer to the event to book your time slot.
The start is based at McLaren High School, Callander. Parking is available across the town, charges may apply. The start is approximately a 5-minute walk from the town centre car parking. We are encouraging all participants to come to the event with family and friends. This will mean participants can be collected by their friends at the finish at Monachyle Mhor Hotel, where they can join in the celebrations and share the Run Mhor experience.
For runners coming to the event alone, we will be offering a return bus service, please see below. The parking at Mhor 84 Motel is for relay runners only, not spectators as spaces are very limited. Vehicles will be directed to park on the service road which runs in front of Mhor 84. Parking at the finish is based in the fields below Monachyle Mhor Hotel.
