At The Event Village
Enjoy our new and improved Event Village in 2019!
Not only do we have three brand new Trail Races (5K, 10K, 18K), we are delighted to announce some exciting additions to the event programme for 2019.
All will be happening in our Event Village, located right next to the Ice Factor in the centre of Kinlochleven. Plenty of parking is close by, just follow the signs on arrival (parking is £1 per visit so please bring change and all proceeds will go to the local community trust).

Start / Finish Arena
Enjoy the amazing atmosphere and buzz of a big international event in the start / finish arena. The start / finish arena is the best place to cheer on your friends and family. Listen to professional live commentary and watch the prize ceremonies on a new big stage (for the main skyrunning races this will take place at approx. 16:00 each day). Also, the return of the big screen TV means more video, leaderboards, and live race footage and updates from around the course.
