This page has results for the Glen Lyon Ultra Marathon & Trail Race.
Here’s the provisional race results for this year’s ultra and trail race. These haven’t been checked yet, so please treat them as provisional and email us if you have any queries.
We’ll expand this section with the usual information once we’ve unpacked from the weekend.
Thanks again to everyone who took part and completed the races. They’re both tough routes and the weather conditions didn’t help, with a strong headwind present for the outward direction in both valleys. Hopefully you all enjoyed the experience, the scenery and are feeling proud of your achievements, whatever your aim was.

This year saw the addition of a trail race on the Sunday in addition to the ultra on the Saturday.
105 runners started the ultra marathon on what was a blisteringly hot day which took its toll as only 92 finished. John Connolly set a new course record, beating the time set by James Stewart in 2016 by 5 seconds!
In the women’s race, the course record also fell, with Lyndsay Cameron knocking nearly fifteen minutes off the inaugural record!
