Ultra X 110 Scotland by Asics 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.
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.
The Highland Club in Fort Augustus is the perfect place for family and friends to join in supporting you over the bank holiday weekend. If you're travelling to the Scottish Highlands with family or friends, take advantage of a comfortable apartment with activities for the whole family. Should they wish to enjoy the region while you race, there are plenty of local sights to explore. Alternatively, you could visit them together after the event.
