Firelighter Ultra route

Runners will encounter a wide variety of terrain, including sandy and pebble beaches, steep cliff top paths, headlands, rocky coves, sand dunes, farmland fields, sections of forest and quaint seaside fishing villages.

The route is predominately trail, but there are small sections of public road, although these tend to be quiet country roads. There are also gates and stiles to negotiate throughout the length of the course.

From the organizer

Organizer's website

Since 2017, we have been offering runners the chance to run Day 1 of the Ring O' Fire as a separate race. If you prefer a single stage race over a shorter distance this may be the race for you. This 35.7 mile race is a very challenging ultra marathon in its own right. We call it the Firelighter!
