Skyline's Final Hurrah In Kinlochleven

If you've ever fancied running in one of the Salomon Skyline races, now's the time...

It was announced this week that 2023's Salomon Skyline Scotland® will be the last in Kinlochleven with organisers confirming that there will be no 2024 edition before the event relaunches in an exciting new venue in 2025.

Speaking about the decision, organisers commented: "We have a clear vision of the potential for Skyline Scotland® to be a truly world-class trail-running event, and to make this happen, we have made the difficult decision to relocate from Kinlochleven.

"Therefore, 2023 will be the last edition of Skyline Scotland® in Kinlochleven. We would all like to express our sincere thanks to the residents, landowners, businesses, community groups and organisations that have warmly welcomed us over many years."

This year’s Salomon Skyline event will be held over the weekend of 16–17 September, so there is still time to sign up and experience the existing courses before the event relocates. It is known to be the UK's biggest weekend of trail running and skyrunning with five of the toughest trail races in the UK on offer where you can run alongside the world's best mountain athletes?

In addition to the 52K Glen Coe Skyline race, the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace, the Salomon Mamores VK and the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra will also be returning to test more experienced mountain runners.

But Salomon Skyline isn’t just for international athletes and mountain goats. The event’s three lower level trail races – the Grey Mare’s 5K, the Loch Eilde Mor 10K and the Three Mealls 18K – will also be making their return, guaranteeing a race for everyone this September.

Looking ahead, organisers signed off by saying: "A significant amount of feasibility planning has already been completed assessing several potential venues across Scotland that are vying to host Skyline Scotland®.

"Skyline Scotland® will return in 2025 reimagined and re-energised. You can expect a much bolder and more exciting version of the event, that will stand shoulder to shoulder with the other major European and World trail-running events."
