Climb the UK's highest mountain and watch the Ben Nevis Ultra™ competitors race through the highest checkpoint on the event.

About this Event

Get up high in the mountains and share the exhilaration with competitors of the Ben Nevis Ultra™.

Our guided walk to the summit of Ben Nevis is a brilliant chance to tick-off the UK’s highest mountain, and watch some of the runners ascending the spectacular Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête as they approach. It is likely that you finish this walk as darkness falls, so a headtorch is essential. The group will need to organise their own transport to Glen Nevis to start this walk.

This guided walk is specifically designed for the friends and family of the competitors who would like to get out in the high Scottish mountains, but would prefer to do so as part of a group. A good level of basic fitness is required for this walk. Over 16s only.

For all our guided walks please come prepared for any weather, and a day of mountain walking. This means you will need the following essentials:

A packed lunch and plenty of snacks

Water bottle (and perhaps a thermos flask if it is cold)

Waterproof jacket and waterproof trousers

Warm mid-layer AND a spare warm jacket (it quickly gets cold when you stop to spectate)

Suitable footwear such as walking boots

Hat and gloves

Headtorch

We would also recommend taking a smart phone (perhaps with a powerbank back-up) so that you can follow the GPS tracking live for the races. We will also provide each person with a race map. Our Mountain Leaders will carry emergency equipment for the group such as a first aid kit and group shelter.

Please note, when you meet your Mountain Leader, there will always be group discussion and decision about the itinerary based on the weather and groups’ ability. It is possible that the group will decide on a different plan. If transport is required, the group will need to organise this with their personal vehicles.

The hike is approximately 16km with 1,350m ascent. Exact start and finish times TBC upon meeting your guide.

Pre-booking here essential. Maximum 5 spaces available.
