Isle of Jura Fell Race

Described by the race organiser as “a true test of mountaincraft, athleticism and fell running technique”, the Isle of Jura Fell Race is a perfect challenge for seasoned runners who are looking for something a little tougher than usual. The terrain can be rocky and dangerous at times, particularly from Beinn Shiantaidh to Corra Bheinn so be sure to have a good look at the map for a rough idea of what to expect. Entries close on May 1st 2015.
