Conquer the Heights

Experience the joy of the Stuc a' Chroin 5000 Hill Race

The race is run annually on the Saturday before May Day Bank Holiday Monday. This year, 2024, it is taking place on May 4th. 

Usually blessed with good weather, its timing at the beginning of May does mean that there may be a variety of conditions - consult the forecast before your journey ... and don't forget the midge repellant as well as your mandatory equipment. There will be an up-to-date forecast of local conditions right up to the start on this web site in the Stop Press section.

Challenging terrain, breathtaking views, and an unforgettable race await you. Join us to test your endurance and determination.

About the Race

Conquer the Stuc a' Chroin and Ben Each peaks in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park

The Stuc a' Chroin 5000 hill race is an annual event that will test your limits. With a total climb of over 5000 feet (1500m) and a distance of 20k, you will tackle the stunning summits of Ben Each and the Stuc a’ Chroin amidst the beauty of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

This year, the race takes place on May 4th, 2024 in Strathyre, Perthshire at 13:00. 

Allow plenty of time for the journey and registration. It's early May Bank Holiday and traffic from Stirling, past Blair Drummond Safari Park, and through Callander can double the normal journey time. 

There's a licensed bar and free ceilidh after the race. Bar open from 5, and ceilidh starts at 8pm

 Please note that after losing the website from the previous providers, the new website is under construction.
