Route information
This 17 day epic adventure will see you travel from length of the UK from John O'Groats to Lands End in a once in a lifetime experience, running over 50 miles per day on average. The route will almost all be on road and continues to be developed each year to avoid busy roads.
It is important that we gain an early understanding of the group of entrants each year.
From Day 1 we look to offer check-points at 8 mile intervals. Generally though this gets extended in distance by the request of runners. That said, if just one runner needs extra support, we will be there for them.
Included Merchandise and Gear
At John O’Groats you will be provided with Hi-Viz clothing which will consist of a showerproof jacket and six technical tops. This clothing will be branded with the Ultra Running Logo, the race name ‘JOGLE’ and your personal name.

Main Meals
Breakfast for the first few days is a full hot breakfast. On earlier start days there will be food to suit each runner, such as porridge, cereal, banana, yogurt. You will eat well, and evening meals will often be at local restaurants. (Drinks, starters and deserts are not included)
Along the route there will be checkpoints where runners will be provided with water, and soft drinks, as well as a variety of snacks such as sandwiches, malt-loaf, and other options.
Dietary restrictions
You will be asked to give your food preferences and highlight any allergies that you may have. You will be burning a significant number of calories so it is important you receive food which is suitable for you. If you do have a special dietary requirement you may have to provide your own supplementary food.
Tracking and SOS Signals
Each competitor will be given a tracking devise which will enable individuals progress to be monitored and recorded. The tracking devices also have inbuilt SOS buttons in case of an emergency or required assistance.
Within your entry fee is a non-refundable £30.00 allowance. During the race you can ask the organiser to purchase any personal items that you need. This can be topped up if you wish to the organiser to purchase more items for you.
Cut-off times
This is an extremely challenging event which few will be able to complete, therefore cut-off times have been set in advance. These cut-off times have been set based on a minimum average speed of 4 mph. This is for the first 10 days and if you fall behind you will be given a warning, and if the next day is also below 4 mph you will be withdrawn from the event.
The final 7 days will have some flexibility on the 4 mph limit, at the discretion of the race director. Runners will not be allowed to run after 22:00 on days 1-16.
Failure to complete a Day
If a competitor fails to complete any individual day, at any stage of the race, they will be out of the race, and will be transferred at the discretion of the organiser to the nearest train station or other agreed point.
JOGLE is a cup-free event. You must bring a reusable bottle or cup to use at filling stations.
