Part of the Skyline Scotland weekend - also featuring a 10K and 18K Trail Race, the Mamores VK, the Ring of Steall Skyrace, the Ben Nevis Ultra and the Glen Coe Skyline.
5K Route Description: Heading out anticlockwise from our grand start venue at the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven, and initially sharing the same first section with the famous Vertical Kilometer® (Mamores VK) race, you will feel like this is the beginning of something big, despite the seemingly modest 5km distance. There is something else about this route you see – a short but super-steep ascent on a memorable zig-zagging rocky trail in beautiful woodland. Once past the Mamore Lodge, the route levels out on a wide trail to give fantastic views west over Loch Leven and the surrounding Munros, before switching sharp left steeply down an exciting single-track section of the West Highland Way. All that remains is the final flat run-in through Kinlochleven, to the crowds at the finish. Britain’s toughest 5K trail race? We’ll let you decide.
The inaugural race received some stunning feedback: "Was it really just 5K? That was fantastically action-packed!"
