Glen Lyon Ultra & Trail Race
The Glen Lyon races take place in May each year with the ultra marathon (31.5 miles) on the Saturday and the trail race (15.5 miles) on the Sunday.
Glen Lyon is one of the most remote and beautiful locations in Scotland, but is very easily accessible.
Both races are ideal for first-time trail or ultra marathon runners.
