Beginning on 16th April 2011, DirectRooms.com announces the
annual Highlander Mountain Marathon, taking place over two days. The
two-day course is an event for any person with a sense of adventure. As

equipment necessary for overnight camping.
The marathon participants must have the ability to navigate the course in foul
weather and over rough ground in the Highlands of Scotland.
All participants must be over the age of 18 years and have to compete in teams of
two. The entries must be made in pairs and each team member is required to maintain
contact with the other throughout the competition.
Entry fee for the competition for each team is £90. If the team members have a
SPORTident card, the fee will be reduced to £86. Teams will choose a course
depending on their skills and abilities. There are courses for elite athletes as
well as for first time competitors. Organisers will provide competitors with a
mandatory kit list.
The event kicks off at 9am on Saturday morning. There will be staggered start times
for various teams. All teams will compete over the course of two days, with all
competitors having to finish the course by 9pm on Sunday.
