Route information
Starting on the hour every, this event is a form of an ultramarathon race where runners will run 4.167 miles in under an hour, every hour. Once one lap is completed, the remaining time is used to recover before the next one starts. We keep going until you are the last one standing.
BustinSkin Events know, they get that this isn’t everyone cup of tea, they really do get that, however, if it is, then where else would you get to run past 2 prisons, 1 set of Olympic Rings, a cricket club, 2 stone quarries with carvings to behold, 1 ex-Olympic sailing venue, and beach views to die for, a wallaby farm, alpacas and some Portland Sheep, and some high angle batteries from the 1892? Don’t think they've missed anything!
This course has it all - Grass/gravel/track/tarmac/pavement - you name it, you run on it (OK don’t name it :) , there is no beach or water jumps!)
But what you do get is -
A fully marked route which you will become familiar with over time, Camping on site included in your entry for you and 2 crew, A stunning DNF memento/medal for those who tried but failed, great support, full chip timed, medic cover, even a pot noodle if you’re lucky too, plus the usual stuff you would expect from a BustinSkin Event, helpful marshals, words of advice about your life choices, a no nonsense race brief and plenty of encouragement along the way.
Fancy it? Or even part of it?
If a marathon distance is your thing then 6 loops and you’re done, chill out, drink wine, annoy the others.
100 miles? 24 loops, drop out, sleep, eat, and support the others with words like ‘seemed a good idea at Christmas’, ‘Not long now’, ‘its just running - how hard can it be’ - or be creative and use your own.
200 miles? 48 loops, or ‘Yards’ as the experts call them - they say you can’t do it, why not prove them all wrong!
Going till there’s only you? Well, that takes some mental agility and a body of steel.
