2016 Film Released In Partnership With BMC TV
In partnership with BMC TV, we are delighted to announce the public release of the 2016 Cape Wrath Ultra™. The film, produced by Slackjaw, focuses on a handful of the inaugural event's participants as they head for Cape Wrath on a once in a lifetime, 8-day expedition race weaving 400km through the Highlands of Scotland.
The Cape Wrath Ultra™ is a biennial event that first took place in 2016; an ultra-running expedition through some of the world's most inspirational landscapes, including Morar, Knoydart, Kintail, Torridon, Assynt and Sutherland. It is Scotland's answer to the biennial Berghaus Dragon's Back Race™ which dovetails into odd-numbered years (2017, 2019..). The race has often been referred to as the UK's answer to the Marathon des Sables.
