Course Details
The route will be fully marked and offer 5 aid stops along the Fox Way. This scenic circular course was devised by Richard Fox, an avid local walker who was amazed by the beautiful and varied countryside he found along the route. Keen to share his findings, Richard set about signing and publicising his "Fox Way."

    Did the 42km Route in 2019

    This was my first Trail Marathon and an excellent place to start! Undulating scenic route round the Fox Way. Very well marked and excellent friendly feed stations! Will most likely try the Ultra next time!

    Did the Ultra in 2019

    Lovely low key event with a great route which has a bit of everything the Surrey countryside has to offer - woods, river, hills, views and a bit of sand just to finish off the legs! The aid stations were well stocked and placed at good convenient distances. Nice event to take on as your first ultra

    Did the Ultra in 2017

    Thoroughly enjoyed this event. Beautiful part of the country with the Surrey Hills/North Downs as part of the course. Great organisation as usual from AAT.
  • Did the Ultra in 2019

    I think this event has everything going for it -
    - initial information top notch - information on the website, interaction on FB page, ease to register,
    - parking - not at the event itself but plenty of parking around (I do recommend train station - only few minutes distance from the start / finish)
    - good organization in the morning at registration - nice and smooth - but I was one of the first ones but even as the queue grew - the guys were very efficient,
    - free tea and coffee making facilities - you had to make it yourself but it was there available for free (not paying 2 or 3 quid for a tea bag and cup of hot water - like at some events....)
    - sermon before the start - sorry - race brefing - short, efficient, to the point - which I personally liked
    - extremely well marked course - it's impossible to get lost - you have arrows after arrows after arrows... and also you just follow signs with Fantastic Mr Fox himself ;-) (ok fox head with a crown on it)
    - well stocked aid stations - with selection of food (sweet savoury) and drinks (proper Coke!!!!) - and very efficient volunteers
    - great views - canal paths, woodlands, fields
    - not too much tarmac
    - bit hilly but nothing to complain about
    - great finish line - with again free hot drinks and cakes - cakes and more cakes :-)
    - really nice bling - and a buff...
    Personally I didn't find the course too hilly - although it is a bit undulating - nothing too extreme.... But again - depends on where you train on daily basis...
    All in all - top event - and I would definitely recommend to anyone!


  • Did the Ultra in 2019

    Fantastic event set in the picturesque Surrey Hills & River Wey valley. Well organised with many running options all ending at the same place. Great atmosphere, a really fun event.
  • Did the 21km Route in 2019

    Really enjoyable race with great scenery. It combines some tough climbs with flat an fast.Will definitely do again
  • Did the Ultra in 2019

    Flawless delivery, very well stocked aid stations, some of the finest scenery that the Home Counties have to offer and – most importantly – some of the friendliest, cheeriest most good-natured marshals in the world.
    I love AAT events – they are among the most laid-back, low-key and good fun events on the trail running scene. The Fox is no exception. After competing (possibly the wrong word, given my age, morphology and my inability to get out of a low chair without grunting) in 2018 and 2019, I will most definitely be back in 2020.
  • Did the 21km Route in 2019

    Stunning scenery and a great hilly challenge. A great race for beginners and seasoned runners alike. Would like to do again
  • Did the 42km Route in 2019

    The team at aat never fail to deliver. Once again a superb event. It’s the detail like asking what fuel runners want for the feed stations well done Toby and the great team.
  • Did the Ultra in 2019

    Fantastic event, really well organised. A very varied route across fields, through woods along canal paths etc. There really is a bit of everything. Top draw
