Race Description:

Originally the brainchild of James Thurlow, ITERA is now organised by Durty Events - one of the most experienced adventure sport companies in the UK with over 200 events behind us. Paul McGreal was Race or Event Director for ITERA 2019, 2022, 2023 and 2024. The Course Planner is ex-World Champion Tom Gibbs (also Course Planner in 2014, 2019, 2022 and 2023).The idea of showing off the country at its finest is what motivates the team behind the ITERA.

ITERA is a made-up word - ITER – Latin for “journey”.. and the “A” stood for little more than the ADVENTURE


The teams will be racing over 600km through Scotland over five days in August 2024. The Race HQ and Finish Line will be near Aviemore in the stunning Cairngorm Mountains. The start location and the course? You'll have to wait until August 2024 to find out!

The full event it will be a big challenge to all the top teams, but one that should be achievable for ALL. With shortcuts available based on the unique ITERA Long/Short Course format (approx. 300km) for the novice or slower teams we hope everyone will enjoy the drama and excitement to be found in Scotland.

Good navigation is essential for the race, and you will be provided with detailed maps to follow. The race will include fell running, mountain biking, kayaking, orienteering and a few surprises taking you to those hidden gems. Attitude is everything, so be prepared for the unexpected.
