In the spring there was an email went round the westies mailing list about a potential new race… a sky running race in Glencoe. Going over all the major peaks in Glencoe and including some interesting scrambling. The response to the email was some people were intrigued, others dismissed it as too dangerous and a stupid idea. Having heard of epic sky running races in Italy I certainly fell into the intrigued camp. The very rough looking website describing the event said entry would open in March so I made a note in my diary to check back when the entry opened. March came and went with no news on entry opening and I assumed the race was not going to happen. However, at the end of April another email went out suggesting that entry was open for the ludicrously expensive £70. Despite my brain and wallet telling me not to I entered.
