Johannes Felter, the SOA Regional Development officer (Highland), was 13th at the inaugural Glen Coe Skyline race. This is 52.96km with 4,256m of climb, which he did in 8:33:10. The winner, Joe Symonds, did it in 7:36:21. The route features long and sustained sections of scrambling terrain, which is roughly equivalent to moderate standard rock climbing.
