Ben Murphy went to the Mamores to run the Vertical Kilometre, part of the Salomon Skyline Scotland event. The VK route is a fairly brutal 1027m ascent over a 5k distance, from sea level at Kinlochleven to the finish line at the summit of Na Gruagaichean (and then you have to make your way back down again after the race!). Ben finished in a very good time of 58:51 and in 122nd= place in a high quality field of 343 runners.
The race was won by Remi Bonnet of Switzerland in a time of 39.23.
