The Isle of Jura Fell Race - 25 May 2013
Locals and visitors alike race over 7 peaks including all 3 of the Pas of Jura. Racers climb (and descend) 2370m starting from Craighouse at 10:30. It is quite a spectacle watching runners descenmd the scree covered hillsides.
Somehow competitors still have the energy to dance into the night at the traditional after race ceilidh at Jura Hall - why not join them?
