2019 sees the first running of the Thieves Road Ultra, an event which we've been looking to put on for some time.

The route uses historic drove roads and will see runners going from outside Balerno to Peebles before heading out to the hills around Glensax.

There will be loads of space for parking at the event base camp in Peebles. We will then bus you to the start.

The route will be fully marked and we have .GPX available form our website if you want to reccie the route in advance or put it in to your watch.

Due to the time of year we expect underfoot conditions to be nice and firm, so road shoes or trail shoes will do the job. 95% of the route is on recognised paths, trails and drove roads. There is some running on open moorland but given the time of year, it shouldn't be too marshy.

The distance is circa 40 miles (you'd be disappointed with us if we put a race on with an accurate distance).

This race is a two point qualifying event for the UTMB series.

All runners will get a technical t-shirt or vest, a race memento and a goody bag.

You can find the race essentials here - https://runyabam.com/race-information/thievesroad/

As 2019 is the first year of the race, we'll have a smaller number of race places available.

If you have any questions about the race, do not hesitate to get in touch with us via our website.
