High pressure across Scotland. Hello. It's taken a while, well two cancelled attempts and a slight re-schedule to be precise, but the weather and conditions are now looking good for a crack at Ramsay's Round tomorrow. My start time is 0300hrs, Friday 12 June.
Ramsay's Round is a 24 hour hill running challenge based around the Glen Nevis and Lochaber Mountains in the Scottish Highlands. It's probably not a concept many runners will be familiar with, but essentially it's the Scottish equivalent of the increasingly popular Bob Graham Round in the Lake District, and is a classic for sure.
Due to the rather drawn out Scottish winter this year, I've already had to postpone the attempt twice, now meaning it falls just a week before the Dragon's Back Race ! Not ideal, but with all the hard work completed via numerous recce trips and setting up a brilliant support team to help - it's now or never. So I'm going for it.
The Highlands always offer such an epic day out - it's going to be one heck of an experience whatever happens.
I will be starting at Glen Nevis Youth Hostel in the early hours, running the route clockwise, and will be aiming to complete in xx hours - you'll have to wait and see....
