Great Glen Ultra
The Great Glen Ultra is a point to point ultramarathon along the historic Great Glen, from Fort William to Inverness.
You can purchase a bus ticket from Inverness to Fort William the night before the race from our shop here. Most runners take this option meaning they can make their way to Inverness before the race and travel to the start with minimal kit.
The Great Glen Ultra is a four point qualifying race for the UTMB series of races.
