Two-day Hebridean multi-sport challenge


ON SATURDAY and Sunday, September 3 and 4, 81 brave and determined multi-sport athletes from throughout the UK and further afield, competing as solos and pairs, took on The Heb – Race on the Edge, a new mountain bike, offroad running and kayaking challenge on the Uist island chain.

On this epic journey the athletes covered approximately 15,000km over two days of endurance racing (with each competitor averaging 125km on day one and 60km on day two) on Benbecula, the uninhabited tidal island of Vallay, North Uist and South Uist – beautiful desolate sandy beaches, magnificent mountains, hidden coves and wild Hebridean landscapes.
