Organiser's Description

Ultra X Scotland is an event 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. It offers two races: Ultra X 110 Scotland and Ultra X 50 Scotland.

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 by Asics (50km single-stage race) takes place on the second day (Sunday) of Ultra X Scotland. Both races are held under full Scottish Athletics permit (#11636) granted through the TRA.
