The Glen Ogle 33 is an ultra marathon held every November, starting and finishing in Killin. Its a perfect race for your first ultra or your 100th ultra. The race is about 31-33 miles long (depending on how we’re feeling), takes in some wonderful scenery including the Glen Ogle viaduct (can you spot it in the race logo?) and is run on non-technical trails.
There’s an end-of-season charity ceilidh after the race in the local village hall, raising money for the local Cancer Research UK fundraising group. The ladies from the group will also be on hand at the end of the race to sell team, coffee and cakes.
Tickets for the ceilidh can be bought at time of race entry – all money from ticket sales will go to the group too.
