It’s been described as one of the toughest races in Scottish hill-running and this Saturday sees the latest running of Glamaig Hil race.

The steepness of the climb, variable weather conditions and the incredible descent have made it a “must do” event for runners drawn from across Scotland.

Currently the Mens’ record is held by Finlay Wild in 2012 with 44:27 timing while for the women that was set all the way back in 1990 by Tricia Calder with a time of 56:10.

The race begins at 3pm with registration taking place at the Sligachan from 1pm.

However, the day isn’t all about the running with a little something for all the family planned.

Activities will include kids’ events, face paintings, bouncy castle, home backing a bbq and even the annual duck race.  Or for those feeling the cold there’s even whisky tastings.

Funds from the race itself will go towards the purchase of defibrillators to be sited at Sligachan and Sconser.
And, the day will be rounded off with a live band playing from 9.30pm.
