The weather isn’t meant to be too nice (maybe rain, 6-7’C), however I plan to run the first bit on my own from Rowardennan, then I’m going to meet a group of runners who are (on a training weekend) running from Balmaha to Inversnaid.
Here’s my plan for Saturdays long run on the West Highland Way:
Before 7am: Leave Glasgow.
8am: Arrive at Rowardennan.
It should still be dark, but the sun will be rising.
Just after 8am: Run south along the West Highland Way towards Balmaha.
9:45-10am: Get to Balmaha / meet the runners coming towards Rowardennan.
10am: Run back towards Rowardennan (with the other runners).
(I can run beyond Rowardennan if I want, then back to my car if there’s time).
I plan to be running for between 3:30 to 4 hours, so I’ll plan to be back to the car between 11:30 to 12.
I’ve walked all of the route on that stretch and run (and walked) some of the route from Rowardennan north. Of what I remember it’s really pretty. We’ll see if I think that on Saturday. 😉
It’ll be nice to meet other runners on the route and share the run. 🙂
If I remember the route correctly, there’s a nice forrest stretch and a part alongside the road, all of which I liked. I’m really looking forward to it.
Now… what to wear… ? 😉
