The Moray Way Ultras Series
The Moray Way Ultras Race Series was launched in 2021 by GB Ultrarunner, Kyle Greig, along with his wife, professional Ironman triathlete, Debbie. Their intention was to give people a reason to train during the Covid-19 pandemic, a new challenge, and a safe environment in which to do it.
The race format is split into 4 race dates, which comprises of the entire Dava Way, The Moray Coast Trail and either the 100k Speyside Way, or the 50k route. Together, this makes a 100 mile loop, making it perfect to add a 4th race, where runners will take on the entire 100 mile Moray Way.
In 2022 we launched the Moray Way 100 Relay, where teams of up to 4 runners take on 12 checkpoints along the Moray Way, whether it be for themselves, for their workplace, or for charity. This means that it is not just ultrarunners who can experience the beauty of the area.
The diverse scenery in this part of Scotland is unrivalled anywhere else in the UK and we believe this is one of the most beautiful trails in the world. The Moray Way route takes in an area rich in history; from Pictish settlements at Burghead, to the land of the 11th Century Scottish King Macbeth around Forres; from the original Highlands railway to the south which now forms the Dava Way path, to the whisky distilling heritage of the Speyside. It is a hotspot with tourists all over the world for a reason and for that we hope you choose one of our races, whether you are a seasoned ultra dafty, or a complete newby to the world of trails!
