About the event

 The UK's biggest weekend of trail running and skyrunning featuring a Golden Trail National Series race (the Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™),  five of the toughest trail races in the UK, and the truly iconic Salomon Glen Coe Skyline®

Salomon Skyline Scotland will be located in the heart of Kinlochleven near the Ice Factor.

Here you will be able to find registration, the start/finish line and the bustling event village. Surrounded by the lofty hills and spectacular ridges, it’s the perfect place for a weekend of trail and sky running!

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 Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ features remote Scottish glens, technical single track, airy ridges, & high mountain passes. Truly, this course is for the boldest all-round ultra-runners.

In keeping with the ethos of the Salomon Skyline Scotland® races, this is very challenging skyrunning with considerable height gain, great variability in the terrain including river crossings, and an airy traverse of one of Scotland’s most famous ridges, the Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête, leading to the summit of Ben Nevis

The Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ follows in the tradition of skyrunning, which consists of uncompromising mountain running, such as scrambling along mountain ridges with steep ascents, traverses and descents on technical and challenging terrain.

This skyrunning race route incorporates two lofty ridges within the Mamores, including the Devil’s Ridge, which provides a thrilling and airy traverse with Glen Nevis visible ahead and as a yawning drop far below, and Ben Nevis beyond and towering above.

Our race route is set within the Mamores, which are an east - west series of majestic Munros (Scottish Mountains over 3,000ft / 914m) and in this route there are four that will be summited. The Salomon Ring of Steall Skyrace™ was an immediate hit when it launched in 2016 and has already established itself as a classic skyrunning event.
