I absolutely loved Race to the king! It was quite challenging but stunning scenery and so well organised and the atmosphere was brilliant and also the camaraderie from other participants was overwhelming I would reccomend it to anyone it's such an amazing experience and to finish at Winchester cathedral was just epic! I would definitely like to do it again!! If anyone is considering an ultramarathon this one is really amazing!!
Did the race in 2019
Another great even run by the Threshold series. This was my second ultra having done Race to the Tower prior. It was well organised, everyone was so friendly and there was no pressure. I like that it is open to all abilities. The pitstops were amazing and there was a great range of food on offer.
