"Soaring ridges, exposed traverses and precipitous drops. Fast and light over rough and technical terrain. A fusion of alpinism and mountain running. Welcome to Skyrunning."

The Salomon Glen Coe Skyline® follows in the finest tradition of the most prestigious Skyrunning races, fusing mountain running and alpinism in a pure test of speed, endurance and skill on an uncompromising, world-class course.

The route features long and sustained sections of scrambling terrain, which is roughly equivalent to moderate standard rock climbing. In addition, the race traverses high and remote mountainous terrain, which is at times impossible to retreat from and may be subject to severe and rapidly changing weather.

The event is only suitable for highly experienced competitors and all entrants are vetted for experience.

Get fit for this race. Take it seriously. Big climbs off-trail. Slippy & technical. 1 feed station only at 35km! Great views, great organisation.

Ran in 2016 as the last race of the Extreme series. It's my home Mountains and the course is totally brilliant. Scrambling and mountain experience is a must here for Curved Ridge and the Aonach Eagach. Other than that lots of the course is on trails but it's a super technical rough course and not for everyone. If you love mountain running and ridges then this is for you.

Fantastic organisation. An incredibly challenging route. Amazing scenery and phenomenal descents. For me....I found the first six miles superb and loved Curved Ridge but knee problem meant I struggled with the downhills. Lots of walking on the route ---proven with the long finish times for 53km! Blessed with pretty good weather this year would be a lot more challenging in poor weather. I pulled out at 20 miles as I didn't want another three hours running/walking/scrambling.

Well organised and marshalled - amazing route but be prepared for a lot of walking.

The route is one of a kind, challenging terrain with stunning views. Great to see such a strong contender in the Skyrunning series from the UK. Very well organised with friendly, helpful and experienced staff. I will be back next year.
