24th-31st May 2020: Are you game for 8 days, 400km and 11,200m of running? This is Scotland’s answer to the Marathon Des Sables.
Welcome to the Cape Wrath Ultra®
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. Entries for the next edition - 24th-31st May 2020 - of this extraordinary adventure have sold out - a waiting list is now in operation.
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.
