The Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ is a challenging mountain ultra, set in the most tremendous mountain scenery.
The race has the considerable objective of summiting the highest mountain in the UK within its route of 52km and 4,000m ascent. Ben Nevis is certainly not the only Scottish ‘Munro’ in the route: Four other Munros are summited, famous glens are visited, tremendous waterfalls, rivers, gorges and lochs are passed, while two distinctly different mountain ranges are traversed: The Mamores (twice) and the loftier Grey Corries.
Certainly, one of the strongest memories – at 20km – will be the passage along the airy CMD Arête, that connects Càrn Mòr Dearg summit to Ben Nevis itself.
In-between the mountains, the route follows a mixture of ancient established paths, glen paths and forest tracks; many of which are the type of superb single track that trail-runners dream of!
The final section of the route merges into the Ring of Steall Skyrace route for the completion of the final three Munros. World-class in all respects, this stern route will be a tremendous achievement, with a return to Kinlochleven in sub 12-hours.
