On September 21st-22nd, 2024, lace up your trail shoes and immerse yourself in the splendor of the Scottish Highlands as you traverse the East Highland Way. This remarkable 200km route, carefully curated between Ellis Brigham’s flagship stores in Fort William and Aviemore, encapsulates the essence of Scotland’s untamed beauty.
The course unfolds like a story, leading participants through the rugged terrain, ancient woodlands, and meandering paths, with the towering presence of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak, standing as a constant companion throughout the journey. It’s not just a race; it’s a communion with nature, a test of endurance, and an exploration of Scotland’s wild soul.
Ellis Brigham, a venerable name in Scottish outdoor pursuits, lends its iconic reputation to this event.

The night section adds an extra layer of challenge and mystique to the event, amplifying the sense of camaraderie among participants conquering the darkness together.
This isn’t just a race; it’s a celebration of the human spirit and the untamed beauty of the Scottish Highlands. Along the route, aid stations become oases of support, offering refreshments and encouragement to keep runners fuelled and motivated. The sense of community among participants, event organisers, and the natural surroundings creates an atmosphere that transcends a typical trail running event.
