Europe Series ITERA

World Champs Qualifier

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!
