Race Support & Vehicle Passes

One of the biggest problems faced by the Highland Fling organisers, and possibly the biggest threat to the future of the race, is traffic congestion on the roads along the race route, many of which are very narrow and completely unsuitable for large numbers of vehicles. Please consider this before choosing to have a support crew! On race day we try to limit the number of cars on these roads. Ultrarunners DO NOT need vehicle support. A drop bag facility is provided in order to allow ultrarunners to be entirely self-sufficient during the race. Vehicle support is NOT needed. We actively discourage ultrarunners from using vehicle support due to traffic congestion along the route, plus the inconvenience it causes to landowners, local residents and the general public. Runners who feel the need for a support crew must pay £11 for a vehicle support pass prior to the event. This pass grants vehicle access to some checkpoints. Without it, your support crew will NOT be able to access the checkpoints and so will NOT be able to meet you during the race.


All of the monies raised from the sale of vehicle support passes is given directly to landowners along the route to keep them happy and to secure the longevity of the event. The race organisers DO NOT profit from the sale of vehicle support passes and would actually prefer that runners chose NOT to have support crews… Please note that any support crew you have CANNOT run with you at any point in the race and must remain within the immediate vicinity of the checkpoints rather than running along the trail to meet you. It is the responsibility of runners to make support crew members aware of this rule. Please note that the vehicle support pass DOES NOT allow your crew to gain vehicle access to the finish area at Tyndrum or to the By The Way Hostel and Campsite!
