Dear All

Please note the 2019 West Highland Way Challenge Race has now taken place.  Thanks again to all competitors, volunteers, third parties and support team for making the 2019 race another great success.  We simply can't put on an event of this scale without all of your involvement and 'one team' approach.  Great job everybody!

Well done again to all finishers who crossed the finish line in Fort William, an awesome achievement.  Well done also to those competitors who may not have finished in Fort William but still achieved an ultra distance personal best.  We also hope all of you have dried out!  Well done for battling the elements, especially the driving rain.

A big thank you again to all third parties who help enable us to put on this event.  In particular thank you to the owners and care takers of the various buildings we used for check points and start and finish venues.

Jim Drummond (Race Director) has already received various emails, messages and even a lovely hand written letter thanking him and his team for putting on another great event. All of your comments and feedback are very much appreciated and welcome.  Your postive energy is infectious.  It is good to know the vast majority of competitors really enjoy the West Highland Way Challenge Race experience.  Some of you have said "it is one of the best ultra events I have taken part in" and you seem to love the fact we provide full support from start to finish. Please feel free to share any further comments/feedback.  Jim Drummond prefers email and phone call communication, if that works for you.

We are now pleased to confirm the 2020 West Highland Way Challenge Race will take place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st May.  We hope to welcome many of you back next year along with plenty of new competitors.

By all means feel free to start training for the 2020 event.  Go on, you know it makes sense.

Thanks again.

Kind Regards

Jim Drummond (Race Director) and

The West Highland Way Challenge Race Support Team
