The Hawks organise two small hill races each year.
Entry-fees are modest, and entries are usually just taken on the day.

Glas Tulaichean Uphill: This is one of the very few uphill-only events in the Scottish hill-running calendar, a 7.2km run with 670m of ascent to the Munro summit. The race is all on land rover track with a few stream crossings to negotiate (wet feet guaranteed!). Once at the top, you can retrieve your warm clothing from the land rover and make your way back down to the barn, where there will be tea, sandwiches and cakes to fill you up before the prizes are awarded. This year we’re trying to ‘go greener’ so please bring your own cups for tea & coffee to cut down on polystyrene waste. Entries on the day from 12:00 and close at 1:20pm. You must supply clothing to be taken to the summit and entries are restricted to over 17s.
In the event of poor weather an alternative course may be run &/or you may be required to carry full waterproof body cover including hat & gloves with you so please come prepared.
If there are enough kids on the day, there will also be the 1km Glas T Toe Tickle fun run for the wee ones at 2:30pm.
