ADVOCACY

Girls on Hills is a She Races champion and part of the Women in the Hills AHRC research network, proactively advocating for equity, inclusivity and diversity in the UK mountains. For more information, see our About Us page.

We recognise that cost is a major barrier to access with respect to trail and mountain sports. We are therefore ambassadors for the INTO ULTRA project, through which we offer a number of free spaces on courses and events, available to those for whom finance is a barrier to participation. To find out what support is offered by Girls on Hills, email us on info@girlsonhills.com


Girls on Hills is also an ambassador for the It's Up to Us campaign. This project by Mountaineering Scotland and the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland (OATS) seeks to raise awareness of the desperate need for investment in the repair and maintenance of informal mountain paths to protect the fragile mountain environment and safety of path users likew trail runners! You can help us step-up and support the hard work here. We care passionately about our mountain environment and strive to promote the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, Bothy Code and responsible use of our upland spaces.

We deliver public speaking at outdoor festivals and write expert editorial  for numerous print and online publications, including Runner's World, UKHillwalking, Women’s Running Magazine UK, Trail Running Magazine and more.
