The Swim Run UK team and and the GGWP safety team from Active Highs are putting together a course that features approx 6km of swims in the three lochs and 42km of running, primarily along the Great Glen Way.  The finalised route will be published 4 weeks prior to the event.

The shortest swim will be a quick plunge across a river, whilst the longest swim is just short of 2km.

The longest run section is approx 9km.

The start and finish will be at the GGWP on Loch Oich.

The route will be marked and marshalled, however it is the responsibility of each team to navigate their way around the course. The organisers will provide a map.

All swim sections will have full medical and water safety cover.

Time check and food aid stations will be dotted around the course.

There will be two sprint prize points on the course.

For safety reasons strict time cut offs will be imposed. More details later.

Accommodation

We have been advised of discounted accommodation for athletes at the GGWP. Due to the festive holidays we have not yet formalised this. We will send a discount code to athletes next week.

Alternatively, our water safety guys at Active Highs have created a brilliant webpage with lots of local accommodation options. http://www.activehighs.co.uk/where-to-stay-other-stuff-to-do
