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.
