A second ultra trail event is to take place later in the year. Find Your Adrenaline is hosting the Ultra Trail Scotland which will take place on June 16 after it was postponed last October. The event will include two race options: an ultra marathon and a 25km race.

Ultra marathon will start in the early morning of June 16 and the race will be held over a gruelling 71km course with over 5,000m overall ascent, taking in some of the most beautiful and challenging ridgelines in Scotland.

Please note that registration for the main ultra marathon race requires appropriate prior ultra race experience and entries will be vetted to ensure all athletes have this appropriate experience.

The 25km race has been dubbed the ‘Tarsuinn Trail’.  A classic loop taking in some of the main ridgelines and traverses on Arran. The 25km with 2,000m+ will take place during the early afternoon on Saturday June 16 and will include some the same technical elements of the main ultra race.

This is a Scottish Athletics Licensed Event, and held under UK Athletics rules.  Additional details on the event, logistics and accommodation options are available via ultratrailscotland.com
