Our Friday Night Video this week is a tour through some of the most idyllic scenery in the British isles; a 400km ultra-running race through the Scottish Highlands: The Cape Wrath Ultra. The team behind the film followed the competitors on their eight day journey and captured the extreme highs and lows of ultra running. Starting in Fort William, the route heads north through some of the most remote places in Britain, over moors, mountains, tussocks, bogs and rivers.
Ita Emanuela Marzotto of Italy, the 2016 ladies’ winner, said: “This race is the hardest thing I’ve done, harder than the 10 day race in Australia or the Marathon Des Sables.”
Men's winner Marcus Scotney commented “The Cape Wrath Ultra is a truly stunning and amazing route up through the Highlands of Scotland. No two days were the same, and each one offered something different."
