John Muir Trust and Nevis 21

Climbing Ben Nevis is free for everyone, and that’s the way it should be. But keeping the footpath in good condition for adventurous boots costs thousands – funded entirely by donations. Path repair and maintenance keeps us all connected to Nevis, and makes sure nature can continue to thrive on one of the UK’s most popular mountains.

The John Muir Trust has been caring for Nevis for 21 years. Your gift to their Nevis 21 Appeal will help repair footpaths and conserve habitats on the UK’s highest mountain. Text 21NEVIS to 70085 to donate £5 (texts cost £5 + a standard rate msg)

Ben Nevis Race 2021

Unfortunately, due to the continued uncertainty regarding Covid -19 and any extra safety precautions that may still be required, the committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Ben Nevis Race.
We apologise for the inconvenience our decision causes and we thank everyone for their continued support.  We hope to see you next year on the 3rd September 2022.
Emails have been sent out via SiEntries to all those individuals who deferred from last year and are on our provisional and reserve lists, please follow the instructions carefully.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not be issuing invitations to anyone on the waiting list until early next year (date to be decided). You will be offered a place before we consider opening the entries to anyone else. We feel that under the circumstances this is the fairest that we can be.

Ben Nevis Race 2021

I’m sure people will be wondering and hoping about the Ben Nevis Race this year. The committee will be making a final decision in early May.
We will be in touch with all the runners through SiEntries once a decision is made and we shall also issue a statement.

Ben Nevis Race 2020

The committee have had a virtual meeting and in the light of the Coronavirus pandemic we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Ben Nevis Race. While all our work was focused on having the event, we must prioritise the health and wellbeing of participants and their families, as well as the army of helpers and volunteers needed for race day. With limitations on gatherings still being implemented it was felt the only responsible decision was to cancel the event this year.
