The Highlander Mountain Marathon 2014 will take place on Saturday and Sunday 26th/27th April.
The Highlander shares a number of similarities with many other Mountain Marathons but it also has it’s own unique character. To start with, the scale of the event means we are able to gain access to some of the most dramatic and unspoilt areas that the north of Scotland has to offer such as Torridon, Dundonnell and Strathfarrar, we also favour wee quirks that make taking part in the Highlander a memorable experience and then there’s the Scottish Ceilidh. In order to keep this unique feel we are capping entries to 300 pairs across all courses. As with 2013′s event we may take the decision to cap certain courses if we feel the numbers are getting too big for that course.
But don’t be fooled into thinking the Highlander is a soft option, our courses are at least as demanding as their counterparts in comparable events we just don’t see the point in making competitors spend any longer than necessary in cramped tents. There are always stories to be shared, friends to catch up with and reels to be danced, on the Saturday evening at the traditional Scottish Ceilidh, before turning in reasonably early in anticipation of a challenging second day. Every year as the event comes to an end we think “ We’ll never top this . . . “, but the following year we always do – see you in April 2014!
The location will be announced on 26th March 2014 – 1 month prior to the event. However, what we can say is that the event this year will take place in the Lochaber region…………..
