I was back on the Aonach Eagach today, but in a different capacity to Friday, as I was acting as safety cover on a section of the ridge to ensure that the competitors were staying on course and keeping them safe.
We made a quick ascent up to Am Bodach and along the ridge, just as a shower swept through. Fortunately, it was short-lived and by the time the first runners were passing through, the weather had cleared up nicely and the rock was more or less dry. The moody clouds behaved for the rest of the day, given a pleasant day out for all.
Needless to say, the race itself is a huge undertaking, so a big well done to all those who entered and gave it their absolute best! Also, nice to see some familiar faces competing!
We have some spaces for the Aonach Eagach on the 28th September, so please get in touch if you wish to tackle this fantastic ridge!
