Beinn Resipol Hill Race
15 Sep 18
The fourth Beinn Resipol hill race will be held on Saturday 15th September starting at 13:00. This year we are hosting the final SHR championship race (medium). Alongside the hill race we are hosting a trail fun run - enter here - so friends, family, kids are welcome to join in and find their own challenge.
The summit is at 845m climbed to from sea level with a total distance of 7.5 miles. The race starts from the Resipole campsite. The route takes in stunning views of the Arnamurchan peninsula. On a cloud free day you can see the Small Isles and Skye to the West and the Nevis range to the East.
