THE GREAT GLENCOE

CHALLENGE 2017


THE ROUTE

TREK 26.2 MILES THROUGH SOME OF THE MOST DRAMATIC LANDSCAPE THAT SCOTLAND HAS TO OFFER, FROM THE HEART OF GLENCOE TO THE FOOT OF BEN NEVIS.

MUD, SWEAT & BEERS, WHAT’S NOT TO ENJOY…

WANT A NEW OUTDOOR CHALLENGE? THEN LOOK NO FURTHER - SCOTLAND'S TOUGHEST TREKATHON TAKES PLACE 1ST JULY 2017

 26.2 MILES - OVER 5000FT OF ASCENT - 12 HOURS

OR… IF THAT’S NOT TOUGH ENOUGH THEN WHY NOT THROW IN BEN NEVIS?

So what is a Trekathon…

A Trekathon is a bit like the marathon (though we think better) covers the same distance by either walking, running or jogging, but nearly all off road. Make the challenge as easy or as tough as you want…
You have a whole 12hrs to Smash it!

Why take part…

Taking part means getting tough and rising to the challenge, we don’t just mean signing up, but committing to train hard to take it on. Involve your mates, family and work mates…. put a team together? Train as a team, rise to the challenge & enjoy some good craic along the way!

What’s involved…

Register online, train and look good & look forward to exploring one of the most dramatic, scenic locations in Scotland. From the heart of Glencoe, over the infamous “Devils Staircase” on the West Highland Way to finish 26.2 miles later at the foot of Ben Nevis… Or choose to carry on up it!

DON’T PANIC, YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS

OUR DEDICATED TEAM WILL BE THERE TO HELP YOU ALL THE WAY, WIPE AWAY THE TEARS,  PAT YOU ON THE BACK… ANYTHING IT TAKES TO GET YOU OVER THE FINISH LINE!
