The scenic 25-mile route remains the same as previous years beginning at Kellands Park in Inverurie, and then heads via Chapel of Garioch, Bennachie, Pitfichie and Monymusk, returning to the start via Fetternear and Burnhervie.
The 13 mile family route cuts off just after Chapel of Garioch and heads down to Burnhervie picking up the main return route.
The 54 mile scenic but challenging Suie Classic route passes through the Chapel of Garioch branches of to the Lord's Throat to Keig, up Suie hill and on to Brindie and back through the Lord's Throat to join the remainder of the 25 mile route back to Inverurie. The route is on quite roads through the beautiful Donside and Bennachie hill range.
Results will be available the day after the event or sooner if possible. There will be a large clock at the start and finish for all riders to manually take their own times if they wish. A number will be allocated to you at registration which needs to be visible to all marshals and start/finish officials at all times. Riders will be checked out onto the course and checked back in at the finish for your safety. If you are unable to complete the ride you must let one of the marshals know so that we don't send out the search parties!
