Organiser's Description

The Cape Wrath Ultra® is a truly unique multi-stage ultra running event - the UK's answer to the Marathon des Sables.

Staged by the same team that brought you the inspirational Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race®, the Cape Wrath Ultra™ is a once in a lifetime, 8-day expedition race weaving 400km through the Highlands of Scotland.

Starting in Fort William, the race takes participants on an incredible journey linking ancient footpaths and remote tracks to the furthest northwesterly point of the British Isles, Cape Wrath. With towering mountains on one side and the crashing ocean on the other, the Cape Wrath Ultra™ travels through stunning scenery and remote wilderness with every step north.

Winding through the beautiful lochs, glens and mountains of the Scottish Highlands, the Cape Wrath Ultra™ is an ultra-running expedition through some of the world's most inspirational landscapes, including Morar, Knoydart, Kintail, Torridon, Assynt and Sutherland.

As a supported ultra-running expedition, participants’ equipment is transported each day with tented accommodation and meals provided at the overnight camps.
