With our races we aim to showcase some of our region's best scenery; we've shown you some stunning coastlines, some sweeping panoramas from the hills and some quaint rural locations off the beaten track, but there can't have been many more spectacular finishes to any UK ultra than the descent into the enigmatic town of Glastonbury featured in Conquest of Avalon. Climb to the top of Glastonbury Tor for an astonishing 360 degree view, then descend through the quirky town to the spacious green fields next to Tor Leisure Centre, where the finish awaits.

Route information
The 50 miler starts at the wonderful Ham Hill Country Park, and you will follow the Leland Trail until you get to Bruton, then you will merge with the Land's End Trail shortly afterwards for the second part of your journey to Glastonbury. The first half of the route was based on royal librarian John Leland's journey in the 16th century to discover which artefacts were held in different churches and priories throughout Somerset. You will then follow the Land's End Trail, a largely unknown route, the remainder of the way to Glastonbury. That magical tor will come into view at various points along the way and excitement will build as it gets closer and closer. From the top it's basically all downhill to the finish.
For the 30 miler you will follow the final 30 miles of the 50 mile route from Castle Cary to Glastonbury. This will feature a scintillating slideshow of south-west scenery, and of course the magnificent tor, and the astonishing panoramic view from the top.
