The Kintyre Way Ultra

The Kintyre Way is one of Scotland’s most scenic long-distance paths offering serious trail running in idyllic surroundings. With varied terrain from hill paths and forestry tracks to beaches and seaside rocks, you’ll have stunning scenery with views across the sea to Arran, Islay, Jura and Gigha at various times.

The Kintyre Way Ultra was first run in 2007, from Tarbert to Campbeltown. Both solo and relay runners took on this massive 67 mile challenge until the introduction of a shorter 35 mile option from Tayinloan. The shorter option proved so popular that the long option was dropped.

In 2020 we will again offer the 32 mile northern part of the Kintyre Way, beginning at Tayinloan and finishing in Tarbert. There will, as always, be a three-stage relay option.

The race has been rescheduled to take place on Saturday 29th August 2020. Please keep an eye on the relevant page of the website for updates due to Covid19.
