Tweed Valley Ultra

A brand new multi-terrain ultra event based in the beautiful Tweed Valley. With two distances to choose from there is something for everyone.

We've designed this brand new ultra as a journey through this unique landscape taking in spectacular panoramic views, extensive forests, across ancient drove roads & rolling hills and along beautiful riverside trails of the world renowned river Tweed.

Terrain: The rolling hills and woodland of the Tweed Valley offer unlimited scope for those looking for varied terrain. The course follows an extensive network of secluded paths and tracks through the various forests, multi-use trails along the banks of the beautiful river Tweed, winding tracks over hills & short sections on minor roads linking in the various areas.

There are no real technical aspects to the course & with spectacular views over the Tweed Valley unfolding throughout, this will be a truly fantastic ultra for offering great variety in terms of scenery & terrain. See below for entry requirements.‚Äč
