GB 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.
