Rules & Guidelines

  • Athletes must carry coat, hat, gloves, foil blanket, first aid kit, whistle, map/compass and/or gps for the duration of the challenge.

  • Runners must announce their attempt to IMC, prior to their run. 

  • There is no time cut-off for this challenge.


  • GPS devices are allowed and pacers are allowed. The same pacer(s) can not complete the length of the challenge with the runner. Otherwise, it will be considered a team completion. 

  • If a runner chooses to attempt their challenge unsupported and/or solely with map and compass navigation, then this will be specified on the results page. 

  • Completed challenges will be validated when a runner/s supply IMC with a gpx of their run. If a runner chooses to navigate solely via map/compass, and they would like this to be specified in their results, then they will have to supply gps tracking link from their run. 


This is a personal challenge. IMC's only involvement is to agree to record attempts. Neither IMC, its servants or agents can accept any responsibility of any nature or kind for loss, damage or injury suffered by a participant who takes part or attempts The Glens Round. Each participant takes part at their own risk and is fully responsible for their own safety, support and equipment.
