SKYLINE SCOTLAND 2016

Soaring ridges, exposed traverses and precipitous drops. Fast and light over rough and technical terrain. A fusion of alpinism and mountain running.

Skyline Scotland™ will feature three of the highest-octane mountain running races in the UK on Friday 16th - Sunday 18th September 2016. Will you be taking part or coming to Kinlochleven to soak up the race atmosphere and ring a cowbell to cheer on the skyrunners?

Ellis Brigham have teamed up with Salomon Running to present 3 days of epic racing at the foot of the UK's highest mountain.

Salomon Mamores VK™ - Friday 16th September 2016 - sold out
An incredible leg burning and lung-busting ascent from sea level to Munro summit. It will take place late afternoon. Entries not vetted.

Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ - Saturday 17th September 2016 sold out
A variation of the classic 'Ring of Steall' ridge-walking route this 25km / 2,500m mountain race has spectacular views of Ben Nevis from the Mamores and includes short sections of easy scrambling.

Salomon Glen Coe Skyline™ - Sunday 18th September 2016 sold out
Does this race need any introduction? 55km / ~4,750m of pure Skyrunning that includes the most challenging Scottish mountain terrain. Climbing experience required.

In the evening we'll be treated to some inspirational speakers and films. On the Friday and Saturday nights we welcome talks by Jasmin Paris and Salomon athletes Tom Owens and Joe Symonds (2015 Salomon Glen Coe Skyline™ winner) who will be introducing two Salomon films including Fast and Light and Bob Graham Round followed by a Q&A session.
