Highlander Mountain Marathon 2010


Haglöfs Supports Highlander!


In the words of Chris Near (one of the Country’s leading fellrunners and winner of the A class of the Highlander in 2007 and 2008):

“ The Highlander is without doubt the best UK Mountain Marathon. It is a fantastic event in some of the best mountain scenery that Britain has to offer, and is unique in that it offers competitors a real highland experience (marquee with ceilidh band, hot food and beer at the overnight camp).”

The 2010 event, which takes place on 10/11 April, will see the Swedish outdoor brand Haglöfs partnering the Highlander to encourage new entrants. Haglöfs, with it’s Intense range of products, is the perfect partner for this high endurance event, having already secured sponsorship agreements with Chris and his fellow team mate Tim Higginbottom earlier on in the year.

The demands from the Scottish weather and the tough mountainous backdrop make the Highlander an ideal event for those who like a challenge. It follows a traditional mountain marathon format over two days, with teams of two navigating over mountainous terrain and carrying all their equipment for the overnight camp. There are 5 classes to choose from which enables the event to cater for elite athletes and yet remain inclusive to a wide spectrum of competitors with a reasonable level of fitness who fancy tackling a new challenge. The format also enables friends or work colleagues to compete internally, thus adding that extra competitive element!  

So if you’ve got a sense of adventure and are up for the challenge, sign up for the Highlander when you are sure to experience a wild and beautiful mountain environment, as well as the fun and social side of a truly Scottish weekend! Entries open 1 November 2009.
