We’re very excited to announce 2019 as the beginning of a new phase in the Kintyre Ultra.
The whole Kintyre Way was extended three years ago to be 100 miles long, but until now, we have ignored the most recent addition down south. That’s going to change. In future, the race will circulate between Tayinloan to Tarbert, Tayinloan to Campbeltown and Machrihanish to Campbeltown. Thus you will be able to run the entire Kintyre Way over 3 years!
For 2019, you’ll be running the shortest section of 33 miles from Tayinloan to Tarbert.
As previously announced, the date will be Saturday 11th May, giving us the use of the large marquees at Tarbert Harbour. This date isn’t a bank holiday so we hope that accommodation will be easier to find and are also looking into budget priced floor space.
A bus will run from Tarbert to the start at Tayinloan, picking up en route. You can book and pay when entering. By the time you finish, public transport will be functioning.
Start time 08:30, max. 10 hours Check-in at Tayinloan 07:00 to 08:15. Bus to leave Tarbert at 07:00
Costs the same as last year:
Ultra £39 up to 31 March, then £44 up to 21 April (closing date) Relay £36 per person up to 31 March, then £41 up to 21 April SAL reduction £2 Bus option £4
Further details will be announced as things fall into place so keep an eye out for the latest posts and chat on Facebook.
