Beyond the Ultimate first encountered Nick Watson in Kenya during the first For Rangers Ultra in 2018.  Through his passion for adventure and enthusiastic nature, Nick quickly established himself as a part of our extended family.  We were over the moon then when he came to us with a plan for an epic new race in the UK.

Now we are all looking forward to April next year when we get to journey to the remote and wonderful Knoydart Peninsula in the West Highland’s of Scotland for the first Highland Ultra.

In this episode, our founder and Race Director Kris King chats with our newest Course Director Nick Watson about the race he dreamed up and about what goes into bringing an event like this to life.
