2013 Highland Fling Preview #trailrunning
This year’s race is more competitive than normal since it’s the UK Athletics Ultra Trail Championship (no need to differentiate between distances in the UK – 53 miles is the defining distance this year) as well as the Scottish Athletics Ultra Trail Championship. If that isn’t enough for locals wanting titles, it’s being used as the official trial for the 2013 IAU World Ultra Trail Championships to be held in Anglesey, Wales on July 6th . The fast runners noted below are also likely to be challenged by some dark horses, but these are the runners who we could identify from the starter’s list.
