Saint Cuthbert's Way Ultra

Can You Beat the Tide?

Run from Scotland to England and be rewarded with stunning views and more besides...

Trail Outlaws' Saint Cuthbert's Way Ultra is also known as The Race Against the Tide and for good reason, the race starts at the historic town of Melrose in the Scottish Borders and finishes at Holy Island on the Northumberland coast but the question is 'will you be there before the tide?'

Following the Saint Cuthbert's Way on 20 July, runners will be rewarded with stunning views of the rising sun as they cross the Scottish border and head towards the Cheviots to Wooler and beyond to the iconic Holy Island which is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Over the course of the race those taking part will experience 100K of running, 8067 feet of ascent and 7765 feet of descent.

With the challenge a real one, organisers say: "All entrants must have completed a race of at least marathon distance within the time limits for that race and that race should have been completed within the last three years."

They add: "Although the race starts at Melrose, most people decide to register at Wooler and leave their car there as there is also a free shuttle service from the race finish at Holy Island to Wooler. You are also able to register at Melrose if that is a better option for you. All runners are given a GPS tracker, which is great for friends and family tracking you from home or on route."

All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and a race memento. A race t-shirt is also available as an addditional purchase.
