Glasgow to Edinburgh Ultramarathon

The G2E Ultramarathon follows the course of the Forth & Clyde and Union canals and takes in the Antonine Wall and the Falkirk Wheel before leading competitors into the heart of Edinburgh. The course is largely flat following the towpaths through the Scottish lowlands yet remains a challenge for the veteran ultra runner and novice alike. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh offer numerous attractions to explore for those staying for the weekend – Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and is home to 41% of the Scottish population: once the ‘second city of Empire’ the city’s thriving nightlife and vibrant culture provide a snapshot of 21st century Scotland. E The race starts in Ruchill Park, Glasgow and has checkpoints approximately every 10 miles. The course is approximately 55 miles long and after leaving Glasgow is predominantly rural and off road until reaching Edinburgh. The finish is at Edinburgh Quay (a short walk from Haymarket train station).
