Dawn breaks and in the crisp autumn air of Scotland’s Capital a quite remarkable new event gets underway. Enveloped within the beating heart of this most famous of cities, the runners of the inaugural Ultra Tour of Edinburgh set off with a Braveheart charge down the most famous street in Scotland – the Royal Mile. Their course then weaves 50km through streets, alleyways, onto hills, up crags, past monuments, museums, seats of Royalty, Government and up and down 3000 feet of ascent and descent.

The Ultra Tour of Edinburgh is unique. Many events claim to be. But this one is an Ultra Run in a city – a city like no other. Rat Race is the UK’s best known adventure sports outfit and our company was forged on the streets of Edinburgh in 2004 with the staging there of our first ever event. It is to our spiritual home that 13 years on, we bring a superlatively ‘doable’ Ultra. 50km on foot is no mean feat but for all those out there who think they can go that extra mile, you can. And what better place to do so than somewhere so hauntingly beautiful, rugged, gnarled and famous in equal measure. 

This will be a truly special event. Join us for the Ultra Tour of Edinburgh. Failte gu Dun Eideann.

All prices include VAT at 20% and are subject to an administration fee.

Why have the extra fee rather than just putting up the entry price?

• No-one likes hidden extras. We are upfront about this fee. The fairest way for us to be fully transparent is to separate this cost out and explain it. The Processing Fee has discrete input costs independent of the direct costs that produce the event. We reserve the right to change this fee based on the processing costs at any time.

Why use the system we use?

• The online payment process is provided by Paypal so it is very secure.

• It offers the opportunity to pay directly from your Paypal account (if you prefer this to paying by credit card or debit card).

• It is the cheapest and best value solution we can find and it is tailored to the events you are entering. We feel it is very competitive in the marketplace, versus the fees charged by other professional event operators.

• It integrates with charity donation web sites so there is a quick and easy way for you to raise money and obtain your fund-raising discount, should you choose.

This fee covers the costs of operating the following:

• The credit card and Paypal processing fees

• The IT development in building, hosting and maintaining the online entry system.

• The associated bank fees and insurances required to process the event registration fees

• The administration personnel costs of running the registration database

• VAT at 20%

Why add on a percentage rather than a set fee?

• Rat Race offer such a range of challenges that our price points vary massively. Therefore it is considered the fairest option that all customers are charged the same %age pro rata.

How can I save money?

• The processing fee will be less the earlier you enter (as it is calculated as a %age) so take advantage of the Early Bird offers to get the best prices across the board.
