The Run Fest started out as just the Ultra event, and in 2014 became the Run Fest and added two other distances on the same day. So you now have the choice of the Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra. It’s flat, the route is well marked and there is support on the course. With a few obstacles (steps, stiles, cattle grids) along the way, this is more of an adventure / fun (yes you read right) course than one to chase a PB on.
