The Route

The Classic Challenge route starts in Glasgow and ends in Edinburgh, via stunning countryside. The route is relatively flat - with only one major hill - and each year we have people aged from 10 to 80 crossing the finish line.

And there are rest stops around every ten miles or so, giving you plenty chance to refuel.
