Route information
In this 6-hour event, run as far as you want during the time allowed and push your own boundaries. With an easy-to-navigate 5.3k lap through the grounds, focus on your own pace and complete as many laps as you can.
Run as much or as little as you want, go all 6 hours or rest between laps at the aid station, take it at your own pace.
The course is a 5.3k lap of the grounds, with only a small section of the course on a rarely-used public footpath. With small inclines rather than hills, this course is primarily flat and mainly follows an undulating pathway.
Whether you're taking on your first ever 5k or you're looking for a new challenge in the ultra, this multi-terrain, mostly-flat undulating course is ready for you.
As long as you are leaving base camp by 5:59:59 you get to run the course again.
