Welcome to the Ronhill West Highland Way Race

The 2018 race is now full.  We will not be accepting any more entries and are not operating a waiting list. 

The full list of 300 accepted runners with their previous number of finishes and personal bests is available to view under the 2018 Race tab.

Entries for the 2019 race will be open throughout November 2018.’

The West Highland Way Race is one of the world’s longest established ultra-marathons, first taking place in 1985 on the long distance trail between Milngavie (just north of Glasgow) and Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.

Since then it has developed a worldwide reputation as one of the ‘classic’ ultra-marathon races, attracting runners to Scotland from all over the world.  Entry is limited to 265 runners each year, with the relatively small size of the field helping to preserve the friendly nature of the event.

2018 will see the 34th running of this great race.  It would be my pleasure to welcome you in the future.

Entries for the 2018 race will open in November 2017.
