Bennachie Hill Race

Date & Location

Oyne, Aberdeenshire

Organiser’s Description

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. 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.
