Saturday the 23rd of April 2016 will be the launch date for a brand new and ultra-exciting event on the running calendar; The John Muir Way Ultra Marathon. The race will be delivered by the experienced Team who have brought you the FoxTrail Winter Running Series.

The John Muir Way Ultra Marathon is the first race of its type on the East coast and guarantees to provide competitors with mile upon mile of East Lothian’s most stunning and iconic coastal stretches, rural landscape and woodland trails. The route will begin at the Port Seton Promenade and primarily follow the well-established John Muir Way and meander through a number of historic towns and villages including Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick with race finishing at Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar.

The John Muir Ultra Marathon is going to creating a fantastic opportunity for new and entry level Ultra Runners to take the plunge and sign up for a new, big challenge. The race will also provide elite and advanced runners with a new, easily accessible race onto their event schedule.

The Race registration will take place at Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar where cars are welcome to be parked for the duration of the race. Transport to the race start in Port Seton will be provided as part of the entry fee. The race will finish At Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar.
