Today is a long distance event

The terrain consists of mixed woodland including birch, beech, and dense plantation. Rhododendron clearance is ongoing, and courses may visit some fast open rough grazing. The River Arkaig flows through Achnacarry into Loch Lochy.

From the race arena there is a steep climb up the afforested hill to 175 metres with some excellent contour detail on the upper slopes.
