Did the The Ultra (100miles +) in 2022
This was the first running of the event, but even that did not stop it from being brilliant, I can’t wait until next year. The route was challenging, but fair, and very well marshalled and marked.

Did the The Ultra (100miles +) in 2022
The course has a very steep hill in the course which slowly grinds you down. The organisation and atmosphere were great.
