The Highland Fling is a 53 mile trail race which takes place every year in April. The route follows the West Highland Way, Scotland’s oldest official long distance footpath, through the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Our aim is to put on an event which will allow as many runners as possible to experience Scotland’s beautiful scenery and also the camaraderie that exists within the Scottish ultrarunning community.
We are LGBT friendly. We are non-binary friendly. You can enter our race as female, male or non-binary. If you are transgender, we are happy for you to enter and run in the gender category you identify with. All event toilets and showers are gender neutral. We are fully committed to upholding all principles of the Scottish LGBT Sports Charter
2019 CHARITY PARTNER
The Highland Fling has teamed up with The Mountains and The People, the flagship project of the conservation charity Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland to enhance and protect the wild and special qualities of the mountains and paths within Scotland’s National Parks.
To help with race day logistics the organisers arrange a number of buses throughout the race weekend. These are available to book when you confirm pay for your entry. You can also book buses later directly via Si Entries. We advise booking the buses ASAP as there are limted spaces on each bus. More bus info here
