8km route
The Illuminator’s shortest route – family friendly but not a walk in the park! Open to young people from 14 years old.

Easy to run or walk on solid trails sheltered amongst the trees. Still with a significant challenge: all routes share the mighty climb of Craigendinnie after you’ve visited the light zone. And yes, even though this is the short route we are sending you up the steep way!

15km route
Our new middle distance route traverses the open ridge above Glen Tanar – more accessible than the classic 15 mile route but more exposed than our 8km route.

The 15km route rewards you with a spectacular view of up to 4km of light trails from your fellow participants head torches. Our reflectives and lightzone will cheer you on, as will the snacks and hot juice before the final tough climb.

Now available to young people from 16 years upwards looking for an epic challenge. This route is open to walkers and runners.

15 mile route
The original Illuminator route and longest distance – a serious physical and mental challenge. Runners only please!

Come back to measure yourself against previous years’ efforts or jump in at the deep end if you want to test yourself with a hilly route that passes through the heart of Glen Tanar’s ancient forest and follows the beautiful Water of Allachy and Water of Tanar.
