Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace Official Recce @ Ice Factor | Kinlochleven | United Kingdom

Girls on Hills Ltd is the exclusive and recommended recce provider for Skyline Scotland. We are delighted to offer this official guided recce day for the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™.

The recce is open to both men and women, and will be led by a professionally qualified running 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 race route. Your guided recce will be Summer Mountain Leader qulaifies as a mimumim and there will be a maximum group ratio of 1:6

You do not need to have a race entry to participate in this event, but you do need an appropriate (high level) of hill fitness.
The day will start and finish at the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven, and follow the epic race route in full over one exhilarating day: www.skylinescotland.com/ring-of-steall-skyrace/information/#displayTheRoute

The group will meet at 08:30 outside the Ice Factor and set off after a quick kit-check. The event will allow you to recce the technical sections of the race route and size-up the magnitude of the undertaking to inform race-day pacing and strategy. It will also enable you to get first-hand experience of how you are moving relative to the cut-off at CP5 in Glen Nevis. The group will finish back at the Ice Factor in order to give you an opportunity to satisfy cake and caffeine cravings!

The recce is not a race, and the intention is to travel at a speed which is comfortable for the group, with time allowed 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.

The group leader has the discretion to change the route followed (like switching to the ‘classic’ route, which is shorter with an alternative start, or official race bad weather route), should conditions dictate.

Accommodation and food is not included.
You will be asked to read and sign a disclaimer before commencement of the day.
