This June we are heading up to Scotland for the inaugural TRIBE Relay Across Scotland by Ultra X. In partnership with the UK’s leading running crews, will bring together the UK running community to train as a team and take on an epic Scottish trail: The John Muir Way. Taking place on the longest day of 2020, we will relay through the day into the night. We will push the limits of human endurance and run 220km, in teams of 4 or 8, in 24 hours to fight modern slavery.

Ultra X Elite Challenge
On 7th March, 12 Ultra X Elite runners will be heading up to Glasgow to recce the course for TRIBE Relay Across Scotland by Ultra X. We’ll be taking 3 vehicles, two trackers and a whole lotta Red Bull, because the plan is to lay down some speed records on the John Muir Way. As well as ensuring the course is as epic as the last time we checked, we’re going to be setting some targets for those who are joining us in June, and here is where it gets EXCITING!
If the winning team can beat the times, we’ll be donating their entire entry fee to the TRIBE Freedom Foundation AND taking them for a FREE weekend in the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains with our friends at Athelysium.
Remember to be in with a shout you will have to register and places are not going to last for long! Track us by following the link below during the race weekend and follow us on our social feeds for all the updates.
The Ultra X Elite teams will be mixed with an even number of girls and guys. To be in with a chance your team must also be mixed (minimum of 1 of either sex for an Ultra team and 3 for a Regular team).
If more than one team beats the time (unlikely!), then the prize will go to the fastest team in each category (ie only one Ultra team and one Regular team can win). Good luck!
