The first edition of the Glencoe Skyline race was in 2015 and already it has established itself as one of the highlights of the world calendar for extreme mountain running. With the addition of the Ring of Steal skyline, Vertical Kilometre and Ben Nevis Ultra this weekend in September is one of the greatest gatherings of extreme runners in the Uk.
The Glencoe Skyline race covers 55km and 4800m ascent of amazing Scottish mountain terrain. This includes an ascent of Curved ridge, a climb graded Moderate on Buachaille Etive Mor as well as a traverse of the Aonach Eagach ridge, which includes exposed Grade II scrambling.
Obviously not an event to be taken lightly, thorough preparation is essential and knowing the terrain will save stress, time and effort when it comes to race day. At Trail Running Scotland we have the perfect combination of experience to help you prepare for this event.
