If running ultramarathons is your thing, and you've got nothing planned for April 2022 yet, then the Highland Kings Ultra in Scotland could be just up your alley. That's if you’ve got about R320,000 lying around. And don't forget about your plane tickets.
Ultramarathon competitors are used to roughing it during races that extended over a number of days. But, with luxurious accommodation including butlers and Michelin-star chefs, this isn't your average ultramarathon.
It's been hailed as "the most exclusive, luxury wilderness ultramarathon ever to be held in Scotland" by Primal Adventure, the organisers behind this luxurious race.
During the Highland Kings Ultra, you'll cover about 193 kilometres over four days. Luxurious accommodation and meals prepared by Michelin-star chefs will await you once you're done running for the day.
For the final leg of the race a speedboat will transfer you to the Isle of Arran, where a gala dinner will be held after the race.
Only 40 runners will be allowed, but they won't be left out in the cold. According to the organisers, tailored training plans for the seven months leading up to the race in April 2022 will be supplied to each entrant. They'll also receive access to physiotherapists, specialists in the ultramarathon fields as well as well-known runners.
