Ultra Great Britain Set For Scotland

ScotlandGB Ultras have announced that the 2018 Ultra Great Britain will be held in Scotland. Held from 18–22 August, the race will follow the Southern Upland Way – a 212-mile coast-to-coast route between Portpatrick and Cockburnspath.

The route is largely trail based with some forest and country roads.

Organisers say: “It is an amazing and very scenic route and Scotland's only official coast to coast.”

The 2017 race will take place in the north of England from 19-23 August, heading from the Trans-Pennine Trail in Southport to Hornsea in East Yorkshire. It involves 7648 of ascent over 214 miles and takes 100 hours to complete. The trail follows a variety of terrain over the Pennines, combining a mixture of natural and urban trail.

Further details, including when entries open will be released soon along with a new website. For more information, visit the GB-Ultras website.
