The Ultramarathon

A big welcome to the eighth running of the

Jedburgh Three Peaks ultramarathon

Distance: 38 miles

Race date and time: Saturday 26th October, 8:00am

Entry fee: £45  (£43 for Scottish Athletics members)

Entry limit: 300  (first come first served, then waiting list)

The event is open to all runners aged 20+ on race day.

 

There are no specific entry requirements and newbies to ultra distance are welcome. If you think you're capable of completing the race, come along and have a go at it! 

The race starts and finishes in Jedburgh. Event parking is Lothian carpark (TD8 6JQ) and race registration is in the Jed Thistle Pavilion (which is immediately beside the car park) from 6:30am-7:45am.

 

Changing/showering facilities are available in the Pavilion, and there is a secure area for runners to leave their kitbags. 
 

The race route will be marked. Click here for a GPX file. We recommend trail shoes as over 30 miles of the course is off-road and several sections are usually very muddy. All runners must carry emergency foil blanket, mobile phone and waterproof top.
 

A drop bag system will be in operation. Checkpoints/cut-offs are as follows:

CP1: Maxton - 10 miles - drop bags - no cut off
CP2: Rhymer's Stone - 17 miles - drop bags - 4hrs 30mins (12:30pm)

CP3: Bowden - 22 miles - no cut off - no drop bags
CP4: Maxton - 28 miles - drop bags - 7hrs 30mins (3:30pm)

 

All runners will receive a tech t-shirt. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal, goody bag and a beer. Spot prizes will be awarded to any runners who catch our eye for whatever reason (usually completely unrelated to running ability.)
 

We provide FREE tea/coffee and two choices of homemade vegan soup served with vegan ciabatta for all runners.
