Welcome to the Ronhill West Highland Way Race

Message from 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 265 runners each year, with the relatively small size of the field helping to preserve the friendly nature of the event.

2020 will see the 36th running of this great race.  It would be my pleasure to welcome you in the future.

Ian Beattie - Race Director

Saturday 20th June 2020 Start Time 1am
