Rat Race Ultra Tour of Edinburgh
Dawn breaks and in the crisp Autumn air of Scotland’s Capital a quite remarkable event gets underway. Runners taking part in the Ultra Tour of Edinburgh set off with a Braveheart charge down the most famous street in Scotland – the Royal Mile. Their course then weaves 57k through streets, alleyways, onto hills, up crags, past monuments, museums, seats of Royalty, Government and up and down 3000 feet of ascent and descent.
The Ultra Tour of Edinburgh is unique. Many events claim to be. But this one is an Ultra Run in a city - a city like no other. It is to our spiritual home that we bring a superlatively ‘doable’ Ultra. 57km on foot is no mean feat but for all those out there who think they can go that extra mile, you can. And what better place to do so than somewhere so hauntingly beautiful, rugged, gnarled and famous in equal measure.
