Men’s 10k – EdinburghEdinburgh, GB

The first Men's 10k took place in Glasgow 9 years ago to raise awareness of men's health issues; it has now positively touched the lives of over 30,000 men and is a major event on both the running and health event calendars, attracting 4,000 men and growing each year! The Edinburgh event starts on the historic Royal Mile; this incredible city centre route then takes you into Princes Street Gardens, with the iconic Edinburgh Castle as your backdrop, onto Holyrood Park, where you take in the spectacular Arthurs Seat, and eventually on to a grandstand finish at Murrayfield Stadium.

While its brotherly Glasgow event has been around for a while, Mens 10K Edinburgh is only in its third year. Consistently around 40% of the men taking part have never entered a running event before. The life expectancy of a man in Scotland is, shockingly, still the lowest in Europe and three years less than in England and Wales. Suicide, in addition to other mental health problems, continues to be an issue of high significance to men in Scotland. Our aim is to help change this, little by little and the Mens 10K is how we are doing it!

Rat Race – The Mighty DeerstalkerInnerleithen, GB

This is probably the hardest off-road-Tweed-clad-pipe-lit-plus-four-and-headtorch-wearing run that exists. We send you across rivers, through forests and over a mountain or 2 in the pitch dark of a chilly March night. Choose to go Half Stalker or for those who have the true minerals, take on the Full Stalker. You can even start with the intention to go Full and bail out on to the Half if you crumble.

Once the race is over, its time for the infamous Mighty Beerstalker Party in our huge heated tent; with grub, Wainwright Golden Beer, bands and the trademark crowdsurfing til late into the night. Party access is included with every race entry and you can roll out of the bar straight into our amazing camp-site under the stars. Get a free pint and a bacon roll the morning after the night before when you buy a camping ticket.

Ultra Tour of EdinburghEdinburgh, Edinburgh, GB

Dawn breaks and in the crisp autumn air of Scotlands Capital a quite remarkable new event gets underway. Enveloped within the beating heart of this most famous of cities, the runners of the inaugural Ultra Tour of Edinburgh set off with a Braveheart charge down the most famous street in Scotland the Royal Mile. Their course then weaves 50km through streets, alleyways, onto hills, up crags, past monuments, museums, seats of Royalty, Government and up and down 3000 feet of ascent and descent.

The Ultra Tour of Edinburgh is unique. Many events claim to be. But this one is an Ultra Run in a city a city like no other. Rat Race is the UKs best known adventure sports outfit and our company was forged on the streets of Edinburgh in 2004 with the staging there of our first ever event. It is to our spiritual home that 13 years on, we bring a superlatively doable Ultra. 50km on foot is no mean feat but for all those out there who think they can go that extra mile, you can. And what better place to do so than somewhere so hauntingly beautiful, rugged, gnarled and famous in equal measure.
