Organiser's Description

Ultra X 50 Scotland is a 50km ultramarathon that 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 takes place on the second day (Sunday) of Ultra X 125 Scotland.
