The Round

The round officially starts and finishes at Glen Nevis Youth Hostel.

The original traveling direction was anticlockwise in keeping with the direction choice of Philip Tranter on his round in 1964

Contenders can complete Ramsay’s Round by traveling either clockwise or anticlockwise, provided they start and finish at Glen Nevis Youth Hostel.

The North Face: Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc (U T M B)

Ramsay’s Round is currently listed as a qualifying race for the annual U T M B race.

It is agreed that any Ramsay’s Round successful completions up to and including the end of 2014 will be accepted as part of the U T M B entry process for 2015.
A number of clubs worldwide are seeking qualifying status for their individual races.

U T M B have now revised their qualifying criteria in collaboration with the International Trail Running Association (I T R A). This involves an annual registration fee of 100 Euros payable to U T M B.

I am clear that Ramsay’s Round is by definition a Challenge and not a Race; additionally no revenue is generated as a consequence of any individuals taking part or completing the round within 24 hours.

In these circumstances, I have instructed that Ramsay’s Round be withdrawn from the U T M B qualification entry process, making way for the inclusion of more suitable races, meeting I T R A inclusion criteria.

Individuals wishing to compete in any subsequent U T M B races should visit their website for the latest entry information and details.
