Dunoon Presents Ultra Marathon

8th October 2016 - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Take part in Dunoon’s first ultra marathon. It could be the most scenic ultra in Scotland!

The Dunoon/Loch Eck 50k Ultra Marathon will start from the famous Benmore Botanical Gardens and will take you through some of the area’s top beauty spots. Climb up the gorge path through magical Pucks Glen and then race along the forestry trail and climb high above Loch Eck. You’ll be treated to fantastic views north and south of the loch, particularly as you reach the highest section of the run 600m above sea level. Descend through Glenbranter Forest and return south on the west side of Loch Eck. Then it’s back to Dunoon through the forest trails and natural woodland of Bishop’s Glen. This last mile stretches north alongside the beach giving you beautiful views of the hills above Wemyss Bay, Inverkip and Gourock. Don’t be tempted to cool off in the water! The finish at the iconic Dunoon Pier is just a sprint away.

Entry is £33 (early bird discount is £23 for the first 100 entrants, £33 for 101-200). This includes:
-Tea, coffee and fresh croissants at registration.
-Coach transfer to Benmore Gardens (15 mminutes)
-Changing facilities
-Full event support including electronic chip timing, check points, drop bags and food/water stations, full first aid back up and at the finish, a fantastic “Ultra cool” goodie bag as a momento of a great day, full of high quality gifts.

Registration for the Dunoon Ultra will be at the Dunoon Pier at:
1600 – 2000hrs on Friday 7th October at Dunoon Pier
AND
0700 – 0830hrs on Saturday 8th October at Dunoon
