After several very successful Man V Horse competitions since 2013 which have been held by the South Loch Ness Access Group, who have decided to step down from organising this year, we have decided to pick up and run the event in a new venue for 2023.. The start time will be 10.30 a.m. with a massed start for all runners and staggered starts for horses and riders beginning 10 minutes later. There is a compulsory briefing at 10.00. It is a circular route of 26 km and the venue is Hollingwells Equestrian, Edderton, By Tain, Ross-shire, IV19 1LJ.
Static water stations will be provided at Checkpoints 1,3 and 4 and of course at the venue. Water for horses should be available on route in a normal year but we will try to have some available at the checkpoints too.
The winner of the competition, whether runner or rider, will receive the Jacobite Warrior Perpetual Quaich. £100 cash prize also goes to the winner. Small quaichs are presented as keepsakes to the fastest runner and the fastest rider. There is also a trophy for the fastest Woman V Horse. All competitors receive either medals for the runners or rosettes for the riders.
