Route map for IMRA Forth Mountain Race by niamh kelly on plotaroute.com
The Senior race is 10 km and the Junior race is about 4.5 km. The trail is technical in places with few long drags. The surface is very mixed with: fire-track, forest-track, single-track, mud, puddles, riverbed, rocks and roots. There is a steep technical rocky descent towards the finish line before a 500 m down hill fire-trail to race to the finish.
LAST YEAR THE CAR FILLED UP SO PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY ENOUGH AS YOU MAY HAVE TO DRIVE TO THE OTHER FORTH MOUNTAIN HIKE CAR PARK

Under IMRA rules for competitor's safety, it is mandatory to bring and carry a jacket that is shower and windproof for the entire race. Any competitor seen not carrying or wearing their jacket at any stage in the race will be disqualified. There are no exceptions to this rule!
IMPORTANT: No cash entries on the day.
Registration will be between 9.45 and 10.45 on the morning of the race in the car park at the Start/Finish line.
You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for end of year prize
Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
