Did you see that Scottish Athletics have asked the organisers of the Cape Wrath marathon to reclassify it as multi-terrain, because of all the potholes.....? Not now an official marathon.

Don't think it was ever a PB course though Nessie, was it? Doesn't it have a ferry boat crossing part way through it (have I got right one, or was that just the ultra?) where they stopped the watch for the time it took to do the boat crossing?! :-) G

They do cross you on a ferry and stop your time, most of the route is off road anyway. It's an amazing event, just don't go there to chase down a pb.

Yes, there's a ferry crossing in the marathon.

The news report says:

"Runners who have competed on the course will be aware of how poor the road surface is and Scottish Athletics have now advised us that the Cape Wrath Challenge Marathon course no longer qualifies as a marathon course due to its 'rough and broken running surface'.

"IAAF requirements are for races to be held on sealed road surfaces."

Not sure what it makes in though?

Given the state of our roads, I expect a large number of events to be removed from the "road racing" calendar on that basis
