A message from the 

Race Director Kyle Greig

"The 1st Speyside Way race first took place on 3rd April 1994 (Easter Sunday as a matter of fact!) as a 50km as opposed to a 37miler (sorry on behalf of the race for adding that extra part for you!). Throughout its 22 year history, legends in not only distance running, but running as a whole, have competed in this event. This event is stacked in history - from the late Don Ritchie himself (former 100km world record holder, who later took on the job as race director) and world 100km champion Simon Pride, to Commonwealth Games runner Fraser Clyne and even 1500m specialist Brian Scally. 

With a wealth of experience and talent, the race has developed and attracted international fields over the years, and I am so excited to be taking this on as Race Director. Being a GB Ultra Runner myself, and having grown up just a stone's throw away from the race location, my aim is to help you either continue your passion for ultra running, or discover some of Scotland's outstanding beauty through the challenge that is distance running. This is all in the hopes that I can fill the shoes of my amazing predecessors in making you fall in love - or continue your affair - with the Speyside Way!"
