The 2017 league action kicks on Saturday 28th January with the 12km (7.5m) Ard Whallan race.

There will be an early start at 1pm for those runners expecting to take over 2hrs to complete the course. The main start will be at 1:30pm. Registration will open from 12:30 at the Ard Whallan Outdoor Pursuits Centre in West Baldwin. Please park sensibly and car share where possible. Entry fee is £5.

Full safety kit is mandatory and will be randomly inspected at registration AND the finish. Full safety kit consists of full waterproof body cover (with taped seams), hat, gloves, map, compass and whistle. Conditions in early season races can be harsh so please ensure you are suitably equipped according to the weather. Route info and a downloadable map can be found at Please print a copy of the map to carry with you (waterproofed using a plastic covering or in a re-sealable food bag).

Online registration is now closed but you can still enter on the day.

Overnight accommodation is also available and we are planning a bit of a shindig in the evening for those interested but this should be pre-booked so we know how many to expect - see for more details.
