Possible Alternative Route Aonach Mor Uphill Race 2017
Hi Folks! Latest Update on Aonach Mor Uphill Race, As you will see from weather forecast there a high risk of Very High Winds forecast for Sunday, should this be the case, the Gondola will not be running and therefore, we shall be using the alternative race which will be as follows Starting at normal place and following normal route up the hill to a Marshall and returning back down the route you went up to the Pinemarten restaurant at the finish where the prize giving and soup etc. shall take place. However the let’s hope we don’t get the bad weather and things will be as they should be and things go as normal.
Full body cover will still be required, (Hat, Gloves Full length leggings/over trousers and jacket) No Gear No run.
Many Thanks Jim.

A fun 5k run for the senior santas and shorter loop for our junior Elves through Fort William, starting and finishing at The Parade.
Finer details to follow but meantime get those Santa hats, jingle bells or elves ears out and dusted down in preparation for the festive fun!
Most of us will ‘over indulge’ over the festivities so a prefect way to burn off a few calories after the club night out (don’t miss that!) or make room for your Christmas pud!! �
There will be buckets out that night if you want to lighten your load of a quid or two for Lochaber Mountain Rescue who work so hard and lets hope none of us require their services – but I am a believer in pay it forward! Don’t worry though if Christmas shopping has left your pockets empty, it’s not compulsory!!
