The entire event route is covered in full in OS Map 51, you must supply your own map. The weather conditions in the Highlands can be variable, even in the middle of July. Your ability to navigate in poor visibility will ensure your safety during the event. We provide grid references for Munro summits, it is then up to you to find the best route, navigation is part of the challenge!
There will be a compulsory navigation test which must be passed before participants can proceed to the registration check-in. The navigation test will require EACH participant to answer/demonstrate some of the following questions:
Participants who fail the navigation test will be 'fined' and asked to donate £25 in cash to the nominated charities on site. An experienced member of the Hill Safety Team will remind you of the basic skills before you are re-tested.
