    Ben Nevis Race

    3 Belford Rd, Fort William PH33 6BT, UKView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    A race up and down Britain's highest mountain - at 4406 feet. The Ben Race has been variously described with superlatives - oldest race, toughest race, most iconic race, the supreme test of fitness, etc etc - and whilst these claims are open to challenge, and the race is certainly not for the unfit or faint-hearted, the Ben Nevis Race Association will always defend its status as a very special event, and it is spoken of by participants with awe - and enjoyment. It has been held on the first Saturday in September every year since 1951, bar one, when the elements won.

    • Did the Mamores Half Marathon in 2018

      This was my first proper trail run, and I'm totally sold. The weather was interesting, sideways rain and snow on the hills, but everyone was in great spirits. We were properly waterproofed up, I ran the entire thing in a shell skiing jacket and proper job Salomon trail shoes - it's worth buying all the kit and doing it properly - getting cold would have been a nightmare. Although saying that, there were a few heros running the marathon in a kilt and a cotton t-shirt so it's really up to you! The course was epic, we set off straight up a really steep hill, it was first trail run so I was like woah here we go, but there were lots of people walking. Our feet were wet by about mile 2 but I couldn't have cared less. It was great fun just powering through the little streams, jumping over rocks and scrambling up hills. The race just flew by, much more so than any London road run I've done. I loved it, would recommend to anyone - beginners and pros alike. The scenery is well worth the trip.
    • Did the Glencoe Marathon in 2018

      Epic trail marathon! I ran in 2018 and the weather was not perfect, but it didn't matter as the scenery is stunning. While it is mostly running on a 'trail' there is plenty of real off-roading. The elevation is about 4,000ft in total which is a lot, but there are sections where no one is running... just too steep. Easily the most scenic running i've ever done. Very well organised, not sure how they got the drinks stops so far up the hill. I'll be back.
    • Did the event in 2016

      This is a very well organised race given the areas run through the support from locals as well as event staff is fantastic. Do not underestimate its difficulty as I did but it is an incredibly rewarding race through fantastic natural beauty. I would recommend this event to anyone just be prepared for some mighty climbs and decents.

    • Did the event in 2018

      Ok, going to get this out there at the start this is an absolutely fantastic race worthy of any bucket list  if you're not going to read tge rest of this review then you should do this race.This race starts and finishes at the Nevis Range ski and mountain resort about two miles outside of Fort William. There are shuttle buses that run between Fort William and the resort as well as lots of parking.The race starts with an overall uphill on mostly trail routes. This was my favourite part of the course with fantastic views and a nice overall variation in terrain and territory.The route then goes to the striking Commando Monument at the nearby town of Spean Bridge. This is the turnaround point. There's then a fantastically fast downhill section on quiet country roads again with fantastic views. About 14 miles the hardest part of the course comes - a flat! From miles 14 to 20 there is a slog along the side of the canal, although this section is perfectly flat it's not the most interesting scenery wise and does feel quite a slog.The final 6 miles of the route are a loop by the outskirts of Fort William then a final uphill section to the end. Who puts a hill at the end of a run!There are regular water stops and there are also high-5 gels at about 4 points on the route. Although there are some trail sections none of them are too technical. It's fine to do in road shoes and those who normally do road racing should not find the terrain too challenging.The race is limited to 500 places which makes it quite a unique experience to run. With large portions off road the local support can be a bit sparse in places but when you go through small towns and by the canal the local people are extremely friendly. There are regular and friendly marshalls.This is one of the most stunning races scenery wise and well worth doing for the scenery alone. Overall the experience of doing such a small marathon on an amazing route is such sn experience in itself. You should do this race!

      My first Ultra and what a fab experience!! Being new to ultra running I wasn't quite sure what to expect although I have particpated in a few 1/2 marathon trail races.This is the second year of this race and I had heard great reports about it and the BAM racing team who organise the event. The pre-race briefing that was emailed out a week earlier was comprehensive and inlcuded all relevenant information. Located bang in the middle of Scotland it is very remote with only 1 single track road in and out of one of Scotland's longest glens.  Logistics called for some pre-planning and I decided to stay in nearby Aberfeldy, about an hour's drive from the start. Although, if you wanted to camp or park up in a campervan there is plenty of room at the Dam. Facilities are very limited although portaloos are on site for the duration of the event.Registration and number collection was all very friendly and efficient. There was even a small selection of accessories for sale ( soft flasks, energy drinks, bars etc) plus a huge amount of home baking!Drop Bag point was at CP 2 which was also at the start/finish area so all very handy which saved time and meant I could look around in awe at the srooundings. The Race Briefing was, well brief ! It is impossible to go off piste as the first part of the course invloves following a land rover track around the side of the Loch Lyon, which is damned as part of large hydro electric complex. CP 1 was located at the opposite end of the Loch at mile 9. This part of the route is gently undualtiing with one or two water crossings which was gently cooling on the feet. Water and jelly babies were on offer along with shouts of encouragement to set us on our way back to the start/finish for CP 2 and the drop bag zone. From here the route followed a steep 2 mile climb up and over the a hill to Glen Lochay. At CP3 we leave the road and head onto another rocky estate track westwards to the head of Glen Lochay before descending  down onto a track that wiggles alongside the river. The final sting in the tale is the 3 mile climb back up the hill before the run down to the Dam at Glen Lyon! The marshalls at CP3 were just amazing and helped replenish water bottles and offer generous words of encouragement. They were obviously having a lot of fun.Crossing the finish line was a great achievement for me and I was rewarded with great applause and a goodie bag with T shirt, Medal, Bottle of Glen Lyon cider, mini bottle of Irn Bru and a Tunnocks caramel wafer. Whilst the majority of the route is on rough track there is small secion on road with a number of water crossings.The views are epic and you really appreciate the Highland Wilderness! In summary general awesomeness complemented by great organisation and fabulous weather.
    • Did the event in 2016

      As my first ultra I chose one that was quite unique. Just beyond the edge of the world and then on a few miles. On the day I only saw 4 people that were not part of the race or race organisation. The volunteers on aid stations were on places that are easier reached on foot and visited by few people!The organisation by BaM racing is good humoured, low key and feels exceptionally professional and safe in very remote conditions. Ridiculously good value and great goodie bag and medal.Did I love it? YupWould I do it again? Hell yeah.More details in blog post: Glen Lyon Ultra Race Report
