The race consists of cycle trail, single track road, forest tracks and steep gravel paths (total 16 miles)

The route is open to other road users and the Highway Code should be followed at all times.

The return journey follows an undulating hill path with very steep sections and sharp corners. 

There are also a number of pedestrian gates on the route and these should be left as they are found. 

Cyclists should be prepared to dismount to pass through gates.

 

 

Cyclists must wear a suitable cycle helmet at all times

 

Full upper body cover (jumper or jacket) must be carried by all participants.

 

 

Loopy Duathlon

Duathletes will cycle the first 9 miles of the route from Callander to Glen Finglas Gateway Centre where they will leave their bike and run the remailing 7 miles.

Bikes are to be collected from here by the athlete on production of race number and password.


Water

There will be water provided at the end of the race.  There will also be a water station at the Glen Finglas gateway centre/ duathlon transition location.  If you require more water on route please make arrangements to carry this yourself.

 

Junior contestants

Please note that all contestants under the age of 18 must have signed permission from a responsible adult in order to participate.  For contestants under the age of 16 the responsible adult must be present at the event throughout the duration.

 

Refreshments

Tea and coffee will be served at the finish line for a donation so please have small change handy.

 

Prize giving

Prize giving will be held by the finish line after all contestants have finished.  At Skidaddle we believe that the prize giving ceremony should celebrate not just the winners but all who have taken part.  If possible please stay at the end of the event to help support the later finishers and join us at the prize giving.

 

Headphones

For safety reasons cyclists are not permitted to use headphones during the event.  Runners are only permitted to use 1 headphone.  Any breach of these rules will lead to disqualification. 

 

Results and Photos

Results and photos will be posted on the Skidaddle website www.skidaddle.org and on Facebook as soon after the event as possible.  We will do our best to get these up on the day of the event but please bear in mind that Skidaddle is run mostly by volunteers and this may sometimes take a bit longer. 

If there are any queries regarding the results please contact Skidaddle by email at info@skidaddle.org and we will do our best to sort out any issues as quickly as possible.
