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."

    Some admin issues. I didn't receive the crucial email with the event details which affected my travel arrangements. My name wasn't on the list. The timing chip recorded a time which was more than 20 minutes slower than my own gps time.
  • Did the event in 2018

    I did the Ultra distance. Lovely course, really enjoyed the route & even managed to enjoy the hills. Friendly people & a good atmosphere.
  • Did the event in 2018

    great event first attempt at a n ultra and thoroughly enjoyed it event staff and Marshall were excellent and made it the great event that it was.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Great race, good facilities at the end and a good atmosphere.
    As it’s a linear run transport back to your car would be a help. Last thing you want to do after a marathon is to mess around with public transport.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Great event with plenty of off road and an interesting trail run.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Took part in the 2018 event as it was just a short walk from my house, and loved it,. Beautiful countryside, well organised and well marshalled. Great challenge and will be doing it again.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Fantastic event! My shoe fell apart and I got a massive blister but we got round, no dramas and there was a very welcome beer van at the end!
  • Did the event in 2018

    I love the Fox Ultra. I did this in 2017 and then came back for 2018, which was the same route but in a different direction. This made a difference doing it in a different direction as it is a loop.

    The event is so well organised. There is absolutely no way you will get lost as there are signs everywhere to follow. This definitely makes it a really good Ultra to do as a first. Also the hills are a challenge especially if this is your first hilly ultra but not exhausting.

    The volunteers are amazing! They are just what you need at an aid station. Helpful and happy no matter what the weather conditions. The food and drink available is perfect.

    I love doing this race as a start to my ultra season for the year. You can train through the winter and it is normally glorious weather come April.

    I have recommended it to lots of people. Best of all this year I met a new ultra running buddy at The Fox Ultra and we have gone on to stay in contact and run more ultras together throughout the year.

  • Did the event in 2018

    I did the ultra in 2017 but only needed a half at this time in 2018. Really enjoyed it. Would certainly recommend this race.
    Last year I made a comment and was really pleased to see this had been actioned.
  • Did the event in 2018

    I ran the Fox ultra race and, as with all aat events, it was well organised. The registration & briefing was good, the navigation was spot on - the course was well signposted but as there is a lot of off-road it does require an element of focus to ensure you see all of them.My only complaint is that the food provided at the end is substandard. It consisted of jelly babies, a small piece of tray-bake cake and a banana.

    Organiser replied:
    Hi Stephen - I'm glad you enjoyed your run with us. Sorry you felt the food at the end was a slight let-down. The cake was self-serve, so you could have had as big a slice as you liked, or have come back for seconds! What would you have liked to see beyond jelly sweets, cake, bananas and ice pops? Happy to take suggestions - [email protected] Thanks!
