Ultra Scotland® 100 Mile
Join us in 2020 & take on 100 historic miles across the beautiful Southern Upland Way. Starting at St John’s Town of Dalry and finishing in Melrose, ultrarunners will take on some of the greatest trails in Britain passing the Striding Arches of Benbrake & the Covenant’s memorial at Allan’s Cairn, before reaching Checkpoints at Sanquhar and Scotland’s highest village Wanlockhead with the brilliant ascent of Lowther Hill (701m).
The Race also takes in wonderful trails at the Daer Reservoir, the glorious Craigmichen Scar, St. Mary’s Loch, Minch Moor and the Three Brethren. A Landmark Race with GB Ultras support and Live Online Tracking via GB Race Tracker. The trail is way-marked as one of Scotland’s Great Trails and is a UTMB Qualifying Race.

Runners can have their own Support Team/Crew to Support their Race.
Depending on the location, no more than one or two Support Crews members supporting an individual runner are permitted in a Village Hall at any one time, these must not impede Village Halls nor other runners and further Info will be provided to Crews closer to the event indicating where the Crews are permitted. Some of the Village Halls are medium sized Halls so to have 3 or 4 crew members for one runner limits the space. Support crews must not take the food nor drink from the Village Hall except for their runner unless given permission to do so. Support Crews must respect Event Staff and are not permitted into the kitchen area unless given permission to do so by the Checkpoint Manager. Failure to do so will result in the Support crew being asked to leave the Venue and possible time implications or disqualification of the runner. During night time periods or if it is obvious runners are sleeping at the Hall it is essential that Support crews respect runners and keep their voices quiet or they will be asked to leave the venue.
Support Crews Permitted from Checkpoint 3 – Sanquhar Community Centre.
For those with a Support Crew, at Race Registration, we require a Name and Contact Number for your Support Crew.
All runners are permitted to have a Support Crew from Checkpoint 3 onwards (unless stated otherwise – please ensure that your Support Crew abides by the Rules of each CP).
