This is City to Summit, an iconic journey between the historic heart of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, and the summit of Britain’s highest peak, Ben Nevis. The route is an absolute belter: Starting with a half marathon of road running from the centre of Auld Reekie and culminating in a crossing of the famous Forth (road!) Bridge to North Queensferry, it continues with a stunning 180km road bike leg snaking its way into the Highlands. Then, ditch the bike to transfer back to foot for the final marathon-distance off-road assault on The Ben.
With a finish line set in spectacular Fort William, you will have 20 hours to tame this Brute. It is no small undertaking and those who do reach the end will have achieved something truly remarkable, having traversed one of the most famous mountain landscapes on Earth. Brought to you by Rat Race, the UK’s most progressive and inspiring adventure brand with a reputation for slick production, you can be assured that the quality of the event on offer will be first-class. There are only 500 places up for grabs.
