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.
