Ultra Fest Returns

Ultra FestFollowing the success of last year's inaugural event, Edinburgh Ultra Fest returns this year on 14/15 March. The event is hosted by ultra athlete and running coach, Andy Mouncey, and Edinburgh Run Tours host, Lucja Leonard.

There is a mix of practical sessions, workshops, speakers, gear to sample, and food to eat. News for 2015, there will be a guided run on the Saturday morning following the 7 Hills race route, a night run on Arthur's Seat, and a Marathon des Sables expo with medical screening from Sandbaggers and Doctor Andrew Murray.

The workshops will be hosted by several special guests covering a variety of topics. Those guests include Scottish adventure runner Shona Thomson, Rin Cobb who will be busting some myths on food and nutrition, and Jason Hubert with his talk La Petite Trotte a Leon: 300km in the Alps.

Organiser Lucja Leonard says: "This run is a wonderful opportunity to experience the city from the comfort of your trainers as the route takes twists and turns and little-known access ways to make this a genuine exploration linking seven high points of the city."
