The Adventure Show - 2010/2011 - Ben Nevis Race

This month the Adventure Show heads west to Fort William for the Ben Nevis race, often described as the world's toughest. Each year nearly 500 men and women run or throw themselves up and down Britain's highest mountain in under four hours - and the fastest do it in just one and a half. It started in 1895 and since then competitors have been coming to Lochaber from around the world to take part in the challenge. Also, we find out how to make the most out of a day in the mountains with the experts from our National Outdoor Training Centre, Glenmore Lodge, and discover why one man is planning to enter the record books by running non stop from John o'Groats to Morocco. Finally, we follow Cameron McNeish on an excursion into the hills.
