A MULTI-TERRAIN ULTRA SET AROUND THE HEART OF THE STUNNING TWEED VALLEY
Two Distances: 50k & 65k
Sunday 19th November 2023
"Another Superb Race in Your Portfolio"
The event is part of a fantastic weekend of trail races with the Glentress 21k & 10k Trail Races scheduled for the Saturday.
With the new development work in Glentress Forest now in progress, we've implemented a few exiting new modifications to the routes. Check out the updated details below
The Tweed Valley Forest Park is described as the main visitor attraction in the Scottish Borders. The park is made up of a number of forests each with their own unique character "strung like pearls along the silver thread of the River Tweed". The area has a rich heritage of ancient forts, settlements and towers to explore.
We've designed this ultra as a journey through this unique landscape taking in spectacular panoramic views, extensive forests, across ancient drove roads & rolling hills and along beautiful riverside trails of the world renowned river Tweed.
