Staged by the same team that brought you the inspirational Dragon’s Back Race®, the Cape Wrath Ultra® is a once in a lifetime, 8-day expedition race weaving 400km through the Highlands of Scotland.
Starting in Fort William, the race takes participants on an incredible journey linking ancient footpaths and remote tracks to the most northwesterly point of the British Isles, Cape Wrath. With towering mountains on one side and the crashing ocean on the other, the Cape Wrath Ultra® travels through stunning scenery and remote wilderness with every step north.
Winding through the beautiful lochs, glens and mountains of the Scottish Highlands, participants will pass through some of the world’s most inspirational landscapes, including Morar, Knoydart, Kintail, Torridon, Assynt and Sutherland.
As a supported ultra running expedition race, participants’ equipment is transported each day with tented accommodation and meals provided at the overnight camps.
