This looks like a fantastic race and is high on the to do list. I was hoping to do the race this year but it was only 2 weeks after the DW so it was ruled out.
Next year it is on the 22nd/23rd of March, a month before the DW. This would definitely be a testing race given the unpredictable nature of Scottish weather and it being so early in the season.
Here is what is on offer for the non-stop race:
21.5kms of canal...
60.5kms of open water Lochs...
Grade 1/2 river… 1 Nessie!
Check out the video of 2013. It looks great.
