11 miles long, 6 miles wide, famed for it’s white sandy beaches, blue skies, unspoilt landscape, and no midges! Tiree’s coastline is rugged, beautifully carved, and adorned with long stretches of firm sandy beach. The complete circumference takes in 35 miles of the finest Hebridean scenery. And that is the Tiree Ultramarathon – The Land Below the Waves.
When entry is full, the events will show as CLOSED – our next round of entries will be released on Sunday 16th December at 8pm. There is no waiting list, so make sure you’re ready with your entry details in December. Thanks everyone for helping to make the event so popular, we hope to see you on the start line!
There will be 200 places available from October, and we’ll have another round of entries in December with an additional 50 places plus any cancellations. There are a minimal number of relay team spaces as the solo entries are usually over subscribed and we need to give as much opportunity as we can for full distance runners. We do really value the relay teams, and want to keep them as part of the event, but we do have a maximum capacity so can only apologise if we run out of space for additional teams.
