Glenmore 24 is a 12/24hr trail race held in the Glenmore forest outside Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands.

Situated near Loch Morlich, the location is stunning and completely off road. The route is a 4 mile loop starting at ‘The Hayfield’ then heading out on to the forest trails passing Loch Morlich with a water stop at 2 miles.

There’s a wee hill between miles 2 and 3.

The main race route is in full operation for 12/24hr hour with an option at 11/23hr to join a small 400m loop for the last hour. It is worth noting that if you start a 4 mile loop and don’t complete it within the 12/24hr time, the distance will not be recorded. All 400m loops are counted and recorded using a measuring wheel.

The Hayfield will be set up as a runners welfare area. Runner’s aid stations can be set up around the perimeter tap where the runner’s crew can service them on each lap.

Due to covid 19 the following will be in place:

  • 12hr runners will be allowed 1 crew member
  • 24hr runners will be allowed 2 crew members.

The race starts at 12 lunchtime on Saturday 2nd September 2023 and will finish at 12 lunchtime on Sunday the 3rd September 2023. The race briefing will take place at 11.30am.

The safety car/sweepers will be out on the route every 2/3hrs to keep an eye on runners.

It is a runners responsibility to inform their support crew of all information within the race briefing which is sent out 3 weeks before the race. Runners are reminded to read and understand the full race briefing and should ask any questions if they are in any doubt about any information. “I didn’t know” is not an excuse and will lead to disqualification.

Weather Note: 

Please note this event is run in the Scottish Highlands in September where the weather can be harsh and unforgiving. There will be a mandatory and recommended kit list issued with the race briefing. Past years have seen temperatures drop to between -2 and -5 in 2019. See the race rules below for an idea of the mandatory kit. This will be confirmed in the race briefing.
