The 2016 Bennachie Hill Race

02 Oct 16

 

 

The Bennachie Hill Race is firmly established in the hill-running race calendar as one of the most popular races in North-East Scotland among hill and roadrunners alike. At around 8.2 miles in length and with a total of 1600ft of ascent (13.1k and 500 metres), the Senior race is an achievable challenge for everyone. The route is all off-road, and good trail shoes are recommended.

 

The race starts at the Back O’Bennachie car park near Insch and takes in many of the famous ‘tops’ of Bennachie, including Oxen Craig, Craigshannoch and Mither Tap itself.  The route returns to the start via the famous ‘Maiden’s Causeway’, past Hosie’s Well and Nursery Cottage.

 

The Bennachie Hill Race, with Morven and Cairn William, is also the last race in the Aberdeenshire Hill Race series.
