Police put a stop to Scottish hill race
Let’s hope this isn’t the thin end of the wedge as far as issues with the authorities go for fell and mountain race organisers. The 20km Glen Rosa race is renowned for it’s beauty, but tomorrow’s race will not go ahead as planned…
It seems that the police in the region have been in conflict with the Arran MRT and their purpose for being at the race.
The SHR notice points out “Without MRT cover, the Glen Rosa race cannot go ahead. This could have serious repercussions for any other hill races or events dependent on Mountain Rescue cover.”
