Just received from the organisers and it's also on Facebook.

The proposed course will include the following night stop-over destinations: [& approximate total leg mileages – these will vary according to how close to the coast you run or whether you run direct to headlands, so here as a guide]

Day One: Plymouth (11am start) to Hugh Town, St Marys, Scillies - 90NM
Day Two: Scillies to Neyland Marina, Milford Haven – 140NM
Day Three: Neyland Marina to Holyhead – 140NM
Day Four: Holyhead to Troon (via possible lunch stop at Castletown IOM) – 160NM
Day Five: Troon to Oban for overnight stay. The early depart for Corpach/Fort William – 160NM
Day Six: Fort William to Inverness via Caledonian Canal & Loch Ness – 55NM
Day Seven: Inverness to Arbroath – 160NM
Day Eight: Arbroath to Whitby – 150NM
Day Nine: Whitby to Lowestoft – 160NM
Day Ten: Lowestoft to Ramsgate – 80NM
Day Eleven: Ramsgate to Southampton – 130NM
Day Twelve: Southampton to Plymouth – 150NM

TOTAL LEGS APPROX 1570 MILES ALLOWANCE.

Full on for twelve days which is going to be "Challenging"! At least the legs are shortish.
