Win Type II Fun Run and navigation skills course places

Two prizewinners will each win one race entry and one navigation course place


Here is your chance to win one of two sets of places in the Type II Fun Run and navigation courses from Girls on Hills.

“Are you an ultrarunner? Then you must be good at suffering. But can you self-navigate? If not, this is your chance.

The Type II Fun Run is an ultra like no other. There will be no set course, no feed stations, no base camp, no massage tent, no mercy. The race, which takes place in the Scottish Highlands Aug 31 - Sep 1, will be won by strategy, not chiefly by speed. Everyone has 30 hours, a mix of mandatory and optional checkpoints, and a long way to go.
