DYNAFIT NEVIS RANGE - Sunday 25th March 2018

The Nevis Range race never fails to deliver taking racers up the frontal face of Aonach Mor before heading into Coire Dubh which forms part of the famous Back Corries. Over the past 5 years of racing, we have never raced the same course, the conditions and weather always having the final say. We work very closely with the Nevis Range Ski Patrol to design as challenging a course as possible.

Entries close Sunday 18th March 2018.

The cool stuff

Dynafit have been heavily supporting the Skimo Scotland race series since the very beginning and this year Dynafit will be our main headline sponsor sponsoring 5 out of the 6 races. We have had a rethink for prizes and will no longer be providing 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes to the winners. Instead, we have decided to spread the love and every racer who enters the race and turns up will receive a fabulous give away momentum courtesy of Dynafit. In true Skimo Scotland fashion, we will also have a few spot prizes to give away.
