Event description
Official guided recce weekend for the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™

About this Event

Girls on Hills Ltd is the exclusive and recommended recce provider for Skyline Scotland (www.skylinescotland.com)

We are delighted to offer this official guided recce weekend for the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™

The weekend is open to both men and women, and will be led by a professionally qualified guide who also has first-hand experience of the event. You can therefore be assured of a safe, high quality experience with someone who is extremely knowledgeable about the event and the route. Our guided recce weekend for Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ will be led by a Summer Mountain Leader with a maximum group ratio of 1:10.

This recce is not a race, and the intention is to travel at a comfortable speed for the group with time for chatting with each other and the guide. Your expectation should be brisk uphill walking, jogging on the flats and downhill running. You’ll need to come prepared for a big day in the hills with your own clothing, equipment and food.

You do not need to have an entry to participate in this event, but you do need an appropriate level of fitness.

Recces of the Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ are split over two days. On the Saturday, the group meet at 06:30 in the Ice Factor car park in Kinlochleven and set off at 07:00. The start time mirrors the planned start time of the race. This means that whilst getting to know the race route, you also get first-hand experience of how you are moving relative to the mid-way cut-off in Glen Nevis. The Saturday recce follows the race route through to Glen Nevis via Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête and the summit of Ben Nevis. It is an epic day in the mountains! We provide return transport to the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven at the end of the first day.

The Sunday recce starts by meeting at the Ice Factor car park at 08:00 with our transport taking you back to Glen Nevis to start where you finished the previous day. The running starts at 09:00 and you follow the incredible race route to return to the Ice Factor.

For the full route visit www.skylinescotland.com/ben-nevis-ultra/information/#displayTheRoute

Please note:

The group leader has the discretion to change the route followed (like switching to the official race bad weather route) should conditions dictate.

You will be asked to read and sign a disclaimer before commencement of the day.
