Taking adventure sports out of the wilderness and putting them onto the streets of one of world’s most vibrant countries, the Rat Race is a totally unique adventure challenge in which teams race in a multi-sport test of navigation, endurance and skills. The course is revealed just hours before the start of the race and you will come away at the end having experienced Edinburgh in a totally new light. Now in its sixth year, Edinburgh is known as the Home of the Rat Race where you can choose to race in one of three different categories lasting anywhere between three to 11 hours.
The race is designed in a way that is exciting and challenging for the most experienced adventure racers and achievable for those that see themselves more as weekend warriors. The emphasis on the event is participation and having fun with the organisers trying to be as all inclusive as possible
