Did the Ultra - 35 Miles in 2021
Very well organised event, very friendly relaxed atmosphere throughout and beautiful undulating scenery. A nice way to spend a day out. Even with the covid restrictions in place it was great to enjoy a journey with like minded people with different stories to tell. Thoroughly enjoyable.… read more

Route description
Route description

New for this year, all the courses will be run in an anti-clockwise direction for a special edition of these classic routes.

**Ultra - 35 Miles

**The race begins in the Village of Naseby, home of the Battle of Naseby in 1645 - one of the most decisive battles of the First English Civil War. Throughout the circular route, runners will enjoy a variety of historical sites and quintessential English countryside.

The Ultra event will have 5 aid stations and a cut-off time of 9 hours.

Marathon - 26.6 Miles

This multi terrain Marathon tracks a similar route to the Ultra and will take in much of the same beautiful countryside scenery.

Perfect for those looking to change it up from road marathons but not quite ready for their Ultra debut.

The Marathon route will have 4 aid stations and a cut-off time of 9 hours.

Half Marathon - 13.4 Miles

A great race for those looking to ease back on the mileage. Once again, athletes will experience the extensive history of this area and take in the striking surroundings.

The Half-Marathon route will have 2 aid stations en route at the 5.5k and 13.5k marks and a cut-off time of 4 hours.

10k

Change up your usual 10k with this multi-terrain route through the scenic country-side. With a combined start line you will get a real taste for the longer routes and thrill of a big event.

The 10k route will feature 1 aid station at the 5.5k mark and no cut-off time.

A gruelling course no denying it! If you enjoy a challenge this is a well organised event that will push you whilst you enjoy great scenery and fantastic support. Overall, really enjoyed it except the freshly ploughed fields at 12 miles that destroyed me!
