Route information
The 4 UK Ultra races are essentially on parts of the same route at some point, so Trail-Run Explorers have broken them down into 7 separate point to point runs covering in the region of 15-31 miles, creating the Recce Series. The Recce runs are a great way to get some longer training runs in with company and also to familiarise yourself with the routes/terrain of the UK Ultra races.
The runs are for all levels of fitness and will be run at a pace suitable for the whole group. To be clear, these are not races, so if you are looking to zoom off at a 6 minute pace, then this perhaps isn't the event for you.
Recce 4 starts in the picturesque village of Alfriston and takes runners on a 17 mile trail run, finishing up at Eastbourne. This run covers miles 14-31 of the 50k UK Ultra race.
What's included
- Guided trail run
- Packed Lunch
- Discounted local hotels

Did the race in 2023
Very wet and very muddy, neither of which were the fault of the organisers. A thoroughly enjoyable run with good company and well led as well.
Did the race in 2023
It was an awesome run on the South Downs and great atmosphere. Perry and Shell were brilliant leaders and i got some very useful training advice. I would highly recommend their runs.
