The 2022 Altra West Highland Way Race will take place on Saturday 18th June at 01:00

Registration opens 1st November

Welcome to the West Highland Way Race

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.

2022 will see the 36th running of this great race.  It would be my pleasure to welcome you in the future.
