West Highland Way Race


Essentially the object is simple, you start at Milngavie Railway Station (7miles north of Glasgow) at 1am on 24th June & run/jog/walk to Fort William Leisure Centre , 35 hours to cover 154.5km (96 miles) including 4499m (14760ft) of ascent.

Along the way you pass through checkpoints within time limits. In order to participate you must have your own motorised backup, consisting of at least two people, one of which must be capable of covering the last two sections with you (or find you) if assistance is required or during the hours of darkness.
