We’ve just opened entries for next year’s Great Glen Ultra. The Great Glen is a 71 mile race along a historic Scottish glen, from Fort William to Inverness. The route takes you high above Loch Ness, with stunning views across a number of mountain ranges and countryside in every direction.
The race is a qualifying event for the UTMB series of events.

We’re delighted to announce that the very first Thieves Road Ultra will take place on the 10th of August 2019. You can enter via SiEntries by clicking here.
For the first year of the race we’ll have less runners than a “normal” year would have just to test things out and see how the course handles the numbers. We’re also aware that its a bit short notice, but we also get feedback saying that races open way too far in advance these days, so maybe there will be those of you at a loose end looking for a new challenge in the coming months.
The course itself is about 40 miles long… there’s some hills… course will be fully marked… its not technical underfoot and is suited runners of all abilities; so no prior ultra marathon experience is needed.
Race basecamp will be in Peebles, so its easily in reach of the central belt and there’s loads of parking onsite. Runners will be taken by bus to the start and the race will finish in Peebles.
You can find out more about the race from our page here.
Entries for this year’s Glen Ogle 33 Ultra will open on Saturday 1st June at 9pm from the link below.

We’ll have 600 places available and they usually take a week or two to sell, so there’s no mad rush or need to panic.
As always, we’ll be having a post-race ceilidh in Killin. This serves as a nice end of season party with all money from ticket sales and the raffle going to the local Cancer Research fundraising group. The ladies from the group will also be on hand to sell hot drinks and their amazing home baking to runners after the race in the McLaren Hall.
