    Did the Ultramarathon in 2020

    A really Great course with stunning scenic views across Leicestershire contryside, The race is tough with a fair amount of muddy pathways. Navigating with the signage was reasonable but easy to miss so a gopd GPS with routes on them needed. Will be doing the 2 other parts to this course to make the full round
