Congratulations to 2023 Scottish Islands Peaks Race winners, Tangaroa! Skipper Marc Turner, runners Robin Wilkins and David Wallace, and sailing crew Steven Forteith and Nicolas Le Clanche came in with a time of 55:39:43.
The 2024 Scottish Islands Peaks Race will be the weekend of 17 May.
A long weekend with a difference!
This adventure race is for teams of sailors and fell runners (both youth and adult) and is held annually on and around the most beautiful parts of the west coast of 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), and there is also an All Rounders class for sailors that can run or runners that can sail, and a class for Youth (with the assistance of a few adults). All runners should have hill navigational experience.
