Coaches will be used from Milngavie to Fort William before the 10:00hr start in Fort William.

The Ben Nevis competitors will head off up to the summit of Ben Nevis (1,344m/ 4,412ft ) and then return to the WHW start in Fort William having covered 11 miles. They will then proceed down the WHW following the WHW 'Challenge' Race competitors (approximatelly 3 to 5 hours later).

The advantages are that Ben Nevis is done at the start of the race in daylight when the legs are fresh and the WHW mountainous section to Glen Coe Chair Lift, is also done in daylight, thus the scenery can be appreciated.

The winning time in the 2021 race was 28 hrs 9 min. with a race cut-off at 35 hours. (106 miles/ 19,100ft ascent)
Competitors in this race will be credited with the '6 UTMB points' for completing the WHW & Ben Nevis Race. In the 2021 race: 11 started, 6 finished.
