Arrochar Alps recces

Unread post by LouB »

The second SHR championship race is Arrochar Alps, taking place on 29 June. This is a long race and navigation can be tricky, particularly in mist. A couple of recces are being organised to walk (NOT run) around the route as follows:

Sunday 12 May – Second half of route including Ben Ime (munro #3) and Ben Narnain (#4)
Meet 10:30am at the carpark (now Pay & Display) in Arrochar (OS Map 56, GR 298 049).

Sunday 26 May – First half of route including Ben Vorlich (#1) and Ben Vane (#2)
Meet 10:30am at the carpark in Inveruglas (OS Map 56, GR 322 099). Toilets and and café available.

If you would like to come along, please post here or, otherwise let us (or Jocelyn) know, so we know to expect you at the meeting point. Remember we will be walking and so come prepared for a long day out in the hills. Keep watching the bulletin board because plans might change if the weather forecast is bad.

In light of the weather forecast for the weekend, we're now doing the first half of the route on Saturday, not Sunday.

Given that it would be nice to get off the high ground before the rain arrives tomorrow, we aim to spend rather less time in the cafe pre-recce than we managed two weeks ago.
