From a base centrally located in Princes Street Gardens, we will be taking you up, down and all over Edinburgh. This is the hilly one and you should expect some healthy gradient in this event. Practise your ups and your downs and make sure you are ready to keep going even when your legs are telling you to stop. From the drama of the volcanic skyline and the stunning city centre parks, to the old and eery cityscape of the Medieval Old Town, this is an adventure at the very core of Auld Reekie and a route that will catapult you along a roller coaster of 1000 years of proud Scottish history. For 2012 expect for the most part, the same stunning route as 2011, but watch out for new obstacles alongside some of the old favourites that we will be rolling out this year.
