Track the race live! The entire fleet carried YellowBrick trackers this year, though not all teams used them on the hills. The race can be viewed in the embedded snapshot above, by going directly to our page on the YB site, or by downloading the YB Tracking app on your smartphone or tablet (choose SIPR 2016 from the menu).
A long weekend with a difference!
This adventure race is for teams of Sailors and Fell Runners (both adult and teenage) and is held annually on and around the most beautiful parts of the West Coast of Bonny Scotland.
The Race starts in Oban with a short hill run, then a sail to Salen on Mull, run over Ben More, sail to Craighouse on Jura, run the Paps, sail to Arran, run Goat Fell, then sail to Troon. The Race takes 3 to 4 Days and caters for Multihulls, Racers and Cruisers.
Each team consists of 5 (usually 2 runners and 3 sailors), there is also an allrounders class for sailors that can run or runners that can sail, and a class for young people (with the assistance of a few adults).
