Highlander Last One Standing



All ages

  • 4.17 miles trail running


The event also features a one loop, 4.167 mile trail race. The event is set in the stunning Blair Castle Estate, Blair Atholl, Pitlochry. Blair Castle has been the home of the Atholl family for over seven centuries. The castle has had a diverse history, witnessing both turbulent and peaceful times, enlarged and adapted over 750 years. Runners will have 1 hour to complete the first 4.167 mile loop and be at the start line ready to go on the hour, every hour. Any runner not finished inside the time limit and at the start ready to go again will be disqualified. This will happen every hour until there is only one runner at the start line. This runner will be the last one standing. This runner must complete a solo loop inside the time limit to be crowned the winner. This race is not about being the fastest! Remember, at the start of each loop/race all surviving runners are on an equal standing. Runners will be allowed a gazebo/aid station at the start/finish. Though the course is not flat, it can easily be completed inside the 1 hour time limit. If there is more than one competitor still standing at 48hr, then we will extend the time limit to suit. All runners except for the winner will be an official DNF (did not finish) and will get a medal to prove it. Any competitor still in the race at 24hrs, 100.8 miles, will receive a Rocket Events 100 mile medal. All runners in the last one standing ultra will get a race top and the last female and male runner standing, will get a Last One Standing Trophy. Trail race competitors will receive a medal and top 3 male and female prizes.
