Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™
The Salomon Ben Nevis Ultra™ follows in the tradition of Skyrunning, which consists of uncompromising mountain running, such as easy scrambling along mountain ridges with steep ascents, traverses and descents on technical and challenging terrain.
The route is only suitable for experienced and competent mountain runners, and traverses high and remote mountainous terrain. Once committed to some sections of the route, especially the ridges, it is difficult to retreat or deviate from the commitment. The entire route is subject to rapidly changing, highly variable and extremely severe weather and competitors must be capable of a ‘robust completion’ in all but the most serious weather conditions. There are also sections of easier running.
