    Looks like a money making crock of shite for people who have never been out of their back garden without someone holding their hand.

    Just as well Distress Beacons aren't legal - otherwise you would have to have one of them as well.

    Glenshee 9 is new for 2008.
    It's on Sunday August 10th from Glenshee ski centre, and bags 9 Munros.
    Here's the route:

    I'll stick it on Scottish Hill Racing when I get round to it.

    I mostly agree but I don't think 75 quid is that bad for a hundred mile race. Getting permission must be a pain in the lakes and I'm surprised that they have managed to do it because of Park authority etc.
    The GPS bit is crazy - loads of fell runners don't even owe one so they have reduced their market already.

    However it is great that there is a market for events like this and hopefully someone soon will get it right and put on a great 100 mile race that might stop us having to go to france or the US.

    I agree that there's scope for more long races in the UK.
    I've done long multi-stage races in France, Corsica and Nepal, but nothing equivalent to these exist in the UK as far as I'm aware.
