“The Salomon Glen Coe Skyline(TM) 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 at times is 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.”
