The Rat Race Sea to Summit trilogy takes you to the summit of the high points of England, Scotland and Wales along 3 spectacular and varied ultra-distance routes.

The high point of the entire UK needs no introduction and topping out at this trig point will be an enormous accomplishment for anyone who lines up on this stunning west coast Highland startline. The manner in which our route starts out is not the normal way you’d ascend “The Ben,” commencing as it does out on the wild Atlantic coast of Loch Linnhe with views stretching all the way to the west over dramatic Highland landscapes. Boasting 95% trail, you will pass through ancient woodland, past thundering waterfalls, gorges, hidden Lochans and over remote moorland as you wind your way ever closer towards “The Ben.”
