The Event Village
The Event Village is outside the Ice Factor in the centre of Kinlochleven.
Here you will find registration, the start / finish line, the prize ceremony stage, the big screen TV, catering options and a host of exhibitors to meet!
The Ice Factor
Event Parking is right next to the Ice Factor in the centre of Kinlochleven.
Within this area, there will be a short stay space to use if you are simply turning up to register for your race. There will also be a specific camper van area for those with a camper van pass - who will be allowed to stay overnight.
Car parking tickets are available to pre-book here. There will also be limited on-the-day parking for £10 – card payment is preferred.
Please help us and your fellow participants by:
- Car sharing wherever possible
- Filling your vehicle
- Using our shuttle bus service from Fort William, Ballachulish, Glencoe Village and Caolasnacon Caravan & Camping Park
If you manage to fill your car with 4 people or more we will refund you the £10.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Please do not park on residential streets in Kinlochleven. This really annoys the local residents. There are various parking restrictions in place in Kinlochleven please respect these. Each year the police tow away many pirate-parked vehicles! Following the above advice will also help us keep a good relationship with the local community.
If you have pre-booked one of our shuttle buses, you can see information about the bus times here.
