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 quiet roads through the beautiful Donside and Bennachie hill range.
