Over the next eight days, almost 100 ultra-runners will tackle a journey of 400km to the most north-westerly tip of the UK.

From Fort William, participants in the Cape Wrath Ultra® tackle 400km of challenging terrain that links ancient footpaths and remote tracks to the north-westerly point of the British Isles, Cape Wrath. Participants will travel through some of Scotland’s most spectacular landscapes, including Knoydart, Kintail, Torridon, Assynt and Sutherland.

The race is organised by Ourea Events and is possible thanks to the commitment of a team of volunteers who support the runners as they make their way north. This year’s entry list includes a mixture of leading ultra-runners, former participants and event staff, and first-timers, supported by a team of volunteers who will set up a campsite and catering each night along the route.

The Cape Wrath Ultra® will finish at Cape Wrath lighthouse on 8 August. This year, Ourea Events is implementing a series of specific COVID-related measures to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the race.

You can follow the progress of the competitors live at Cape Wrath Ultra 2021 | Open Tracking.
