Landslide in Steall Gorge

14th Sep 2016

Update 15/9/16

After the subsequent closure of the Steall Gorge path, we are able to confirm that the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ will go ahead using the contingency route this Saturday 17th September. The impact on participants and the original race route is negligible.

Full details will be available at race registration.


We are aware of the recent landslide in the Steall Gorge and have already been in discussion with the landowner, John Muir Trust, before 0900 this morning.
Until professional assessment has taken place (which may not happen immediately), we will not speculate on the seriousness or impact on the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™.
We would like to reassure all participants that the race will go ahead as we have contingency plans.
Once we have further clarification, we will provide another update.
