Mhor Trilogy 2023

Margaret completes the Mhor Trilogy of races

The Mhor trilogy takes the format of a 10k in April, a half marathon in June and the marathon in August.

It is  organised by Tay fitness and all races are extremely well organised and marshalled.

10k : This starts and finishes at Balquidder. It consists of a 2k out and back before turning to 

        go 4K straight up the hill and then 4k back down to the finish.

Half Marathon : This race starts and finishes at the Mhor 84 hotel. It consists of a figure 8 format 

       of  8 mile and 5 mile loops.

Marathon : On Sunday the 6th August I completed the Mhor Marathon which is the third and final race of the series.

The race started at 10.00am in Callander with a slightly flatter start than last year.

Thr route follows the path along the side of Loch Lubnaig and past the log cabins at Strathyre, all the way to Balquidder .

Here you begin the loop back to Strathyre back to Balquidder. This begins a 4 mile climb along the side of Loch Voil.

Just before 26m there is a small boat crossing where you can indulge in a Coke, water or a Pimms.

After this it is the final push(uphill) to the finish.

I managed to avoid the rain all day.

These are very scenic and unique races in a beautiful part ogf the country.

Thoroughly recommended.
