The route utilises the best possible trails, paths and tracks for a tour de force of the Lochaber highlands. Gradually ascending from Kinlochleven, the race starts by following the route of the hugely popular Three Mealls 18K trail race in reserve, weaving alongside the River Leven through a magical ancient forest. The mighty Blackwater Dam marks the start of the remote trails to come! From here runners will follow a path that continues climbing to reach Loch Chiarain. Seriously remote terrain lures runners onward and the true wilderness experience of this race becomes apparent with incredible views of nothing but mountains, as they descend towards Loch Treig. For the next 5km the route gently ascends the Lairig Leacach following a historical walking route through this stunning and breathtakingly beautiful glen. The route now turns west following excellent forestry tracks through Leanachan Forest allowing for quick onward progress. Emerging from the forest, the gigantic Ben Nevis looms ahead as the route now follows the renowned North Face path alongside Allt á Mhulilinn up to the famous CIC hut, before cutting under the towering cliffs of Càrn Dearg. Joining the main Ben Nevis path drops the runners down to the Visitors Centre before joining Scotland’s most famous path, the West Highland Way, which climbs out of Glen Nevis and provides a speedy route back to Kinlochleven and a well-earned celebration at the finish line.
