Start Times

Start times will be 06.00 and 07.00. Please note that there are a fixed number of places in each start and start times are allocated on a first come first served basis. You choose your start time when you register for the event. Allocated start times cannot be amended unless there are exceptional circumstances. Cut-off times at the event are fixed so if you feel you will need as much time as possible, register early to ensure you get your first choice of start time.

Cut Offs

The Quad is subject to cut-off times which will be strictly enforced for your safety. Slower entrants should take note of the following cut-offs on the day of the event. Please note that these cut-offs will only impact participants who take longer than an average 4-5mph. It is essential that participants who miss these times abide by them. They are non-negotiable. In the event of severe weather, the event organisers reserve the right to amend the timings for the safety of both participants and volunteers.

Swim: One hour – Participants taking longer than one hour to swim across the loch will be taken out the water and given a lift to the other side of the loch.

Mountain: 14.00 at Ben Lawers summit — Participants who do not leave the summit before 2pm will be asked to take the short course which goes over Munro 5 (Ben Ghlas) and down to the Ben Lawers car park and on to the Kayak start.

Kayak Start: 17.00 — Participants failing to reach the kayak start before this time are unlikely to complete the bike stage as well. Participants are welcome to complete kayak phase but must leave the bike start by the 6.45pm cut-off.

Bike (Start): 18.45 — Participants cannot start the Bike Phase after 6.45pm and will be asked to retire from the event.

And then the party! Going to bed early is for wimps! Ceilidh dancing and prize-giving will be followed by a spectacular fireworks display to round the day off.
