SOCIAL EVENT: West Highland Way Relay – Saturday 3rd June
The annual West Highland Way Relay will be held on Saturday 3rd June.
We split ourselves into relay teams and run the West Highland Way route, starting at 7am in Milngavie and finishing around 5pm in Fort William.
Each participant can select a section that suits them best i.e. early morning / afternoon / close to home, hilly / flat, long / short etc. Everyone is welcome and there is a section to suit all abilities – you don’t have to stay for the full day / night either. There’s no pressure on you to run fast – it’s meant to be a sociable day away, and a change of running scenery from the canal!!
But for logistics, and safety, reasons we do need to know in advance what stage you intend running. Stages are:
Milngavie to Beech Trees (6)
Beech Trees to Drymen (6)
Drymen to Balmaha (6.75)
Balmaha to Rowardennan (7.25)
Rowardennan to Inverarnan (14)
