City to Summit runner

City to Summit

Run – cycle – run: an iconic journey between the historic heart of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, and the summit of Britain’s highest peak, Ben Nevis.

The route is an absolute belter!
Starting with a half marathon of road running from the centre of Auld Reekie and culminating in a crossing of the famous Forth (road!) Bridge to North Queensferry, it continues with a stunning 180km road bike leg snaking its way into the Highlands. Then, ditch the bike to transfer back to foot for the final marathon-distance off-road assault on The Ben.

21.1km of running followed by a 180km cycle followed by a 42.2km run…
This challenge is no small undertaking and those who reach the end will have achieved something truly remarkable, having navigated one of the most famous mountain landscapes on earth.
