Ultra X 125 Scotland
Ultra X 125 Scotland is a 125km two day ultramarathon which takes place in the Scottish Highlands, a mountainous region in northwest Scotland known for its stunning scenery and trails, with the Great Glen and Loch Ness at its centre.
Following a geological fault line formed more than 400 million years ago, the Great Glen runs arrow-straight from Fort William to Moray Firth. Surrounded by some of the UK’s highest mountains and filled with four immense lochs, including the mythical Loch Ness, the glen is a unique wilderness rich in Highland heritage.
Ultra X 50 Scotland (50km race) takes place on the second day (Sunday) of Ultra X 125 Scotland.

The race starts at 07:00 on Saturday morning and covers 75km of spectacular Highland trails. Before the starting gun fires, runners will deposit their race holdall which will be available when they reach camp that afternoon/evening.
The final stage of the race is 50km and starts at 08:00. Runners will again deposit their race holdall, which will be available at the finish line, where prize giving will take place. Competitors can then be transferred back to Inverness.
The living accommodation will depend upon local health authority guidance at the time of the event, but will most likely consist of tents shared by between 6 and 15 competitors. Participants must provide their own roll mats and sleeping bags.
This is NOT a self-supported race. Runners only carry their daily nutrition and emergency kit. Race holdalls are transported by the organisers.
Competitors will need to provide their own food from Saturday 8 May to Sunday 9 May. Dehydrated or freeze dried food is recommended.
