Hi folks    

Welcome to the Cateran Trail 55 Mile Ultra website. Hopefully you'll find all the info you need on the race within the website over on the right hand side in the menu pages but if not please feel free to email us.

2009 was the first year the race was held on this route and organised by my friend Dario Melaragni. Dario is no longer with us but we'd like to keep the race going so here goes, bear with us, and hopefully the race will be as much fun for you as it was for us all involved in the last 3 years.  

The race is held at Spittal of Glenshee Hotel, registration for the 110 will open at 16:00 on the 16th and from 18:30 for the 55.

For 2015 we have a new race headquarters, Gulabin Lodge -

Have a wee look at the website, it's a brilliant high quality bunkhouse! It's got a couple of lounges, kitchen & eating area.

Please note i'll be co-ordinating bookings for beds, space for campervans or tents therefore DO NOT contact the lodge to book a bed.

The bunkhouse only sleeps 39 people in various rooms and bedding is provided, cotton sheets and duvets. Please bring your own towel!

We've block booked the whole bunkhouse for the runners and the lodge house will be used by the marshalls.

The cost of 2 nights at the bunkhouse will be £55 per person for your 2 nights stay and we plan on supplying basic food throughout your stay. Don't be a diva and request weird stuff please! Hopefully weather permitting we can get some barbeques of the go :). 

Your entry form has a box to say how many beds you want to book. Hopefully a week or so after race entries open, i'll collate all the requests for a bed at the bunkhouse and i'll have to do a ballot after which time, i'll then give you a link to entry central to pay for your bed/beds. For those not able to get a bed at the bunkhouse, i'll draft a list of nearby accommodation at a later date.

There is also the option to reserve a space for tents or campervans - cost of this will be a total of £10 for the weekend to cover costs of portaloo hire and food as well.


Really looking forward to a new race headquarters, it'll be just like a massive family holiday weekend away :)
