The Ben Sheann Hill Race

Beinn Sheann, Ben Shian, Beinh an t-Sidhein, however you spell it, there's a race up it on 

Wednesday 14th June 2017.

Gaelic for 'Mountain of the Fairies', you still have to be tough to run it - this is the stocky little brother of the Stuc a' Chroin 5000.

What better way to spend an hour than a trip up Ben Sheann on a beautiful summers evening in June. You can do a full days work, drive to Strathyre, see some mates, run up Ben Sheann and down again, pick up your prize, sup a well deserved ale or vino, and head home. And ... it's still light, so if these light summers evenings are keeping you awake, this is the perfect antidote.

A light drizzle just before the race and wet conditions over the previous days made the going a bit slippery underfoot, but there were no injuries and the finishing time was just outside the course record of 26:32.
