The Goatfell Hill Race on the Isle of Arran takes competitors from the centre of Brodick to the summit of Goatfell (15.5 km, 870 metres of ascent) and back. The Goatfell Hill Race is run under a Scottish Athletics permit event. The race starts and finishes at the Ormidale Pavilion in Brodick and follows the main road north to Brodick Castle drive. From the Castle drive, it climbs to the top of Goatfell via the standard ‘tourist’ path.  It returns the same way to the finish.  The Arran Mountain Rescue Team marshals the route on the hill.  First Aid cover will be provided at the finish.
