Tough last race? Lizzie will tell you that you haven’t seen any­thing yet,

The Glen Coe Sky­line pro­vides proof that the UK has its own ex­treme en­vi­ron­ments. One for ex­pe­ri­enced moun­tain run­ners only, the 52km race – held in some of Scot­land’s most tech­ni­cal moun­tain­ous ter­rain – warns en­trants that a slip or trip on some sec­tions of the route could re­sult in death. Cross­ing soar­ing ridges and ex­posed tra­verses with pre­cip­i­tous drops, the route mixes moun­tain run­ning with long sec­tions of scram­bling ter­rain, equiv­a­lent to mod­er­ate rock climb­ing. Rough and rocky un­der­foot, the race can be sub­ject to se­vere and rapidly chang­ing weather con­di­tions. It forms part of the Salomon Sky­line Scot­land week­end, with chal­leng­ing moun­tain races of var­i­ous dis­tances tak­ing place.
