À propos Cape Wrath Challenge

The Cape Wrath Challenge Marathon is part of the 6-day Cape Wrath Challenge, consisting of 5 days of running, including a half marathon and 10K. Also known as the Campbell Lutyens Marathon, the Cape Wrath Challenge Marathon is extremely challenging.It is essential that every participant understands that this is quite unlike a normal road race. It is extremely challenging, including a climb of over 2,415 feet and is the most North Westerly and probably the most demanding marathon on mainland Britain. The route is extremely exposed. The logistics involved in hosting these events mean that available entries are limited and it is vital that individuals and teams register early.he route takes runners through some of the most spectacular wilderness in the UK to the famous Stevenson lighthouse at Cape Wrath. The route then returns to Capeside where timing is stopped for a ferry journey back across the Kyle. At Landside timing is re-started. The final stretch is from Landside to Durness Village Hall. Your spilt times are recorded on your log card by race officials and your total time will be calculated at Race HQ. SORRY – NO CARD, NO COMPLETION TIME

Cape Wrath Challenge Trivia

In the summer of 2000 a unique and remarkable event took place – the Island Race , a round Britain relay of some 4,200 miles which was to be completed in 100 days. The event was conceived and brought to successful fruition by Richard Haldane assisted by a Technical Director - charged with the responsibility of designing the courses and staging each day of the relay. All those who took part will never forget the often breathtaking coastal scenery and the friendships that developed - as well as the impact the event often had upon local communities. None more so than on Day 93 when the Island Race reached the far north west tip of Scotland and the small community of Durness located on the white sand coast of Sutherland. This really is “the end” of Britain – when you get to the lighthouse at the end of the Cape then you are at the furthest extremity of our country; there is nothing between you and the Arctic or you and Canada. It was decided that such a special area deserved an equally special stage and so, for that August day the Cape Wrath Ultra Challenge – a 27 mile run from Durness to the lighthouse at the end of the Cape- and back was designed. A truly amazing run across this genuine wilderness and totally unpopulated area …. which also includes two ferry crossings. Even before the evening Ceilidh had finished people were offering ideas and possible improvement – such as moving the date to late May when the days would be long, the weather at its best and midges unknown! And so was born the concept of the Cape Wrath Challenge – not just a marathon but a full week of running and social events. The event raised over £1 million for charity – a stunning achievement.
