Salomon Skyline Scotland has launched three new trail races – a 5km, 10km and 18km – as part of this year’s programme of running events in the Scottish Highlands from September 21 to 22.
 
The trail races will have the same start and finish arena as the already established Salomon Skyline Scotland races in Kinlochleven.

3 new trail races

Grey Mare’s Trail Race

Distance: 5km
Start: 10:30am, Saturday September 21

Cost: £19.
 
With steep ascents and zig-zagging rocky trails, could the Grey Mare’s Trail Race be Britain’s toughest 5km? The views are also special, with a vista over Loch Leven and the surrounding Munros. 

Loch Eilde Mòr Trail Race

Distance: 10km
Start: 9am, Sunday September 22

Cost: £29.
 
This race heads through woodland to more remote territory and Loch Eilde Mór via some steep climbing. Runners will be rewarded by tremendous views on the return descent.

Three Mealls Trail Race

Cost: £39.
 
Feeling bold? The 18km Three Mealls Trail Race includes the biggest hills, the widest views and the most memorable single-track running.
