Rat race Adventure Sports’ UTE is the ultimate runner’s sightseeing tour of Scotland’s capital city. Whilst being both a challenging and completely engaging running experience the UTE delivers an unparalleled and all encompassing vision of Edinburgh, showcasing hugely evocative locations and historic and iconic landmarks, the rich urban heritage of the city centre and the stunning wilderness environment of the outlying countryside. The UTE is the ultimate runner’s sightseeing tour of Scotland’s capital city that few will have experienced.

Today, runners ran through the streets, alleyways and parklands of the city centre, onto hills, up crags, along rivers and canals and past monuments, museums, seats of Royalty and Government; from the occasional sojourn totally off road to enjoy the hill top views of the Pentland Hills to the coastal waters and harbours of Newhaven and Leith in the east.
