fellephant's Ben Nevis footage

Well worth a visit today is Mud, Sweat & Tears (MS&T in LINKS>>>). There you'll find brilliant piece of black&white film by the Scottish Hill Runners' blogger fellephant showing the atrocious weather, poor vizibility and slippery underfoot conditions experienced by competitors in the recent 2009 Ben Nevis Hill Race.

"Can you see anybody?" fell champion Rob Jebb asks one spectator.

Would it be safe running in such awful conditions?

Only safe if you have proper fell running shoes, are a club runner and have done the required training which I believe is to have recently completed two AL (category A-Long Races). Not a race for the dilettante. Limit 500 runners and always fully subscribed months in advance.
