A 30 OR 50-MILE ULTRA

THE EVENT

ABOUT THE EVENT

A real challenge from the Wee Run Events team.

Long ultra of 50 miles from Central Perth to Stirling University - this is a qualifying ultra for the West Highland Way Race

Short ultra of 30 miles from Auchterarder to Stirling - a GREAT distance to tackle if you've never done an ultra before

We welcome ALL runners, from ALL backgrounds and ALL genders. We are an LGBTQIA+ friendly event - in fact we're friendly FULL STOP! You can run as M or F or NB and we welcome you to sign up and run as the gender of your choice.

Don't feel ready to tackle an ultra solo as yet? Then do the 50 miles as a team!

Both routes use the Core Path Network giving stunning views across central Scotland - selfies are very much welcomed!

Scottish Natural Heritage Promote the use of the Core Path network details can be found on their website.
