The Glen Nevis River Race is an extreme challenge involving participants navigating through
the icy waters of a two-mile stretch of the River Nevis on an air-bed (Lilo). The intrepid
adventurers begin by launching themselves off a small ledge on a rock face, plunging into
the freezing waters of the River Nevis below. The rules are clear participants have to follow
the deepest course of the river through rocks and rapids, whilst negotiating major obstacles
like the Gurgling Gorge, Dead Dog Pool, the Leg Breaker and the Lower Falls Leap; finishing
in the calmer waters further down the glen.

No Fuss are delighted to be involved in this iconic event, it gives us an opportunity to work
with Lochaber Mountain Rescue team and assist them in raising funds. All of the No Fuss
team have participated in the race in years gone by and loved it.

In a successful thirty year run, from 1973 to 2003, the Glen Nevis River Race enjoyed a high media and public profile as an awe inspiring spectacle. A unique challenge (for the likes of Blue Peter’s John Noakes, musician and TV presenter Dougie Vipond and star of
TV’s Taggart, Blair Duff) and as a worthy fundraising event; with funds raised going to Lochaber Mountain Rescue, the UK’s busiest winter mountain rescue team. Since the events re introduction in 2008 it has attracted a lot of media attention with Rory and Paddy participating as part of their great adventure in 2009 CNN cover the event for their Business in programme in 2010.

More than 3000 people have taken part in the event’s thirty-year history, raising thousands
of pounds for the Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team based in Fort William. Every competitor
is expected to raise his or her own sponsorship and in the past some individuals have raised
over £1000. The first race raised a mere £25.00 barely covering a pair of climbing boots
and the final race in 2003 raised in the region of £10,000 which helped to cover some of
the cost of running the team for a year.

The Glen Nevis River Race offers an achievable challenge to elite athletes as well as those
weekend warriors who use the fantastic landscape in the Outdoor Capital for mountain
biking, climbing, walking, kayaking and skiing. We urge those keen to take part to sign up
as soon as possible so they can start fundraising ahead of the race.

The Glen Nevis River Race is a timed event and the time taken to complete the hazardous
course it totally dependant on the water levels on the day. As a result times have varied
from around twenty minutes to over an hour.

Competitors have to be kitted out in wetsuits, crash helmets, buoyancy aids and suitable
footwear. While flippers and other swimming aids are banned athletes must have an
inflatable craft without sides (lilo) so spectators can expect to see a vast array of inflatable
paraphenalia including sheep, crocodiles and whales and possibly even a blow up woman or
two! Fancy dress on top of a wetsuit is also an option – anything goes in Fort William!
