The Spelga Skyline fell race is one of the long distance events in the NIMRA Championship race calendar, and every year I experience the exhausting pleasure that accompanies the role of Race Director.
Now in its fourth year since returning to the championship. The ‘Denis Rankin Memorial’ Spelga Skyline is possibly the most challenging race of the season. Often requiring navigation across open mountain.
This year we made a video 🙂
Thanks to my video assistant on the day, Geoff Smyth, and also to all the great BARF marshals.
The trails are hard and technical compared to the UK and Ireland, but there’s some great running and outstanding views. Let’s take a look…
Who fancies a nice cocktail? I particularly like the thought of a Nuun Trail Mojito 🤣
Graham has done it again! More fantastic footage from the Hill & Dale race series
