Welcome from the Race Director
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 300 runners each year, with the relatively small size of the field helping to preserve the friendly nature of the event.
2023 will see the 37th running of this great race. It would be my pleasure to welcome you in the future.
