Dunoon 55K Ultramarathon 2016 – a great success!

Dunoon 55K Wee Eck UltramarathonThe big day has come and gone with the completion of the inaugural 55K Dunoon Ultramarathon (also known as the “Wee Eck”) on Saturday 8 October 2016. By all accounts, it was a tremendous success! Dunoon Presents and Dunoon Hill Runners have been inundated with highly positive feedback about all aspects of the day – from trail-marking to marshaling to checkpoints to winners’ mementoes and goody bags … and even the weather co-operated!

Here is one well-known Scottish ultra runner’s race report – Fiona Rennie’s “Dunoon ‘Wee Eck’ Ultra”, with a small extract here:

“For an inaugural race there is always a possibility of some wee teething problems but if there were any I was not aware of them, a class event from start to finish, complimentary breakfast at both registration and race start, enthusiastic friendly helpers and marshals throughout, a stunningly beautiful well marked route, great reception at the finish …”
