Route description
Route description

This race is a different bag of nails to the Guernsey Ultra. In that race competitors get 5 hours to run the cliffs. Once. In daylight. In May . . . In this race the overall cut-off for the race is 7.5 hours (back before dawn) which makes it suitable only for experienced runners. The turnaround point has a 3.5 hour cut-off. It also includes some climbs and paths that are bypassed on the GU36 - to give you the full cliff experience! Around 2,300 metres ascent/descent. qualifying races and experience will be taken into consideration before entry is accepted. At a minimum with no ultra experience, this will be 3.5 hours for a flat marathon plus trail experience and training. Any ultra distance race will qualify but please consider the night-time trail aspect - you should at least have trained on trail extensively in the dark. Entry will be refunded (minus booking cost) if your entry is not accepted. If you are in doubt, please email us to check before entering. You will be expected to be self-reliant. There are no checkpoints apart from the turnaround point so you must carry all the hydration and nutrition you require for 15 miles. At the turnaround there will be shelter, water and minimal food. If you choose to retire here (or are timed out) there is a walk of approximately one mile required to get to our transport. There will be hot food and drinks at the finish and a tent should you wish to sleep after the race (bring your own sleeping kit).
