Great Glen Ultra Marathon



All ages

  • 72 miles trail running


Set amongst some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery, you have to run the 72 miles from Fort William to Inverness along the historic Great Glen within a time limit of 22 hours. The terrain is a mixture of canal towpaths, forestry paths and tracks, and a little time spent on roads. The event is for solo runners and designed to be run unsupported. There are marshaled checkpoints approximately every 10 miles along the fully marked route. The route starts at Corpach and heads towards Loch Lochay before climbing up to give stunning views over Loch Ness. For the most part, the race route follows the waymarked Great Glen which has distinctive blue posts. You are following those all the way to Inverness. The race takes the High Route along the Great Glen which offers even more incredible views. The High Route is clearly signposted as an official Great Glen Way option. The first 30 miles or so are undulating then the major climbs appear after Fort Augustus.
