Ten videos shot on location during the inaugural race in reverse chronological order.

2016 Prize Giving

There was huge relief, pride, and elation amongst the prize giving attendees in Durness village hall last night. Some highly emotional moments were shared as each and every participant completing the full course to Cape Wrath was invited up on stage to be presented with their '2016 Finisher' medal by event director Shane Ohly.

Day seven finish - a rare section of road for this journey – but to be remembered by participants as a road that is taking them somewhere amazing, due to the achingly beautiful seaward views

 

Day 6 Camp Build Time-lapse

We've been asked how long it takes to erect camp. It took us a mere 37 seconds today :p Thanks to John Allen, event team volunteer, for the time-lapse footage.

Day six start

The first participants have left camp 5 for the 'penultimate penultimate' day's journey! "Inverlael to Inchnadamph: "Into Assynt! Escalating commitment" This day escalates into some very remote and rough high ground, but is preceded by significant distances on double-tracks in the glens, and through prime Salmon-fishing country. Day 6 is the longest day, but for all those that have made it this far, this day will unlikely defeat you. Inchnadamph is the highest overnight camp, at 80m, and one of the few that are noticeably not near sea level."

Day 5 finish

Marcus Scotney (4:08:45) just misses 'podium finish' position today, pipped by Andrew Biffen, John Minta, & Stuart Macdonald - although still puts down the fastest actual time for today's stage by almost 1 hour!
