What you need to know

The Green Man Ultra comes in two formats the 45 mile distance and the 30 mile distance. Both races are held on the same course on the same day and have the same checkpoints and finish, just with differing start locations.

The Green Man Ultra 45 is a full loop of the Community Forest Path, starting and finishing at the stunning Ashton Court Mansion House just outside the centre of Bristol. Parking for the event is strictly in the Church Lodge car park and then walk up to the Mansion House, following the race signs.

The Green Man Ultra 30 (affectionately known as The Green Boy) is a partial loop of the Community Forest Path, starting in Keynsham at checkpoint two of the 45 mile route and finishing at the stunning Ashton Court Mansion House just outside the centre of Bristol. Other than the start time, distance and location, all information for the 45 mile event is also relevant for the 30 mile event.

With great success from lasts year inaugural Dark Peaks 30 Ultra Trail, and some fantastic feedback from competitors.
Being described by the elite field of runners as one of the best but hardest 30 mile ultras they have ever raced and truly a classic in the making. We where excited to bring this event back!!!

Starting from the village of Hope, This Ultra will take you into the heart of the Peak District national park, where the total elevation will be well over 7000ft!!

Starting off on the iconic Pennine way you will soon be greeted with some brutal climbs, high ridge lines and fast technical descending, with the time of year and the nature of this course this one will surely push you to your limits!!
