Great Gielinor Run

Great Gielinor Run is an achievement that after speaking to Linford at the Tyras Camp to accept the challenge, requires the player to run from the Tyras Camp to Castle Drakan without teleporting or using other methods of travel. Agility shortcuts and the boat from south Burgh de Rott to south Meiyerditch can be used; however, Temple Trekking shortcuts, the Meiyerditch Laboratories tunnel, and other boats cannot. The achievement must be completed within one game session; lobbying or logging out cancels all progress. There may be a glitch that disqualifies the player if they use Surge and Bladed Dive in the same tick to cover a long distance.[1]
