    About the event
    From the organiser

    Exmoor National Park is one of England's best kept secrets, and this stage takes place in the lesser known western area of the National Park where a trail runner's mecca lies. The course encompasses stiff climbs and long descents, open moorland, thickly wooded combes (valleys), historical ruins, dizzying cliffs, exquisitly beautiful rivers and a stretch of coastline that is unsurpassed. We are confident that there is no course in Britain that offers such a variety of terrain within such a compact area. This truly is trail running territory at its best. The Exmoor course is widely regarded as the toughest course in The Series and is definitely a grueling test of endurance for even the very hardest trail and fell runners.

      Really stunning and super hard course. If there's any rain pre event this is definitely a course for trail shoes - I had trainers on and lots of slipping around the place. Definitely walk up the big inclines and study the course profile before hands. There are a few bits - especially towards the end - that you can get into a good rhythm of running but a lot in the first 2/3rds that's just rolling up and down. Make sure you preserve your legs on the downhills - very easy to blow your knees out!

    The Fox is back for 2019! The course direction has been reverted from 2018 to run clockwise - as it did in 2017. We've teamed up with ULTRA magazine again to bring you The Fox Ultra. A 60km circular ultra run route around Guildford.

      Some admin issues. I didn't receive the crucial email with the event details which affected my travel arrangements. My name wasn't on the list. The timing chip recorded a time which was more than 20 minutes slower than my own gps time.

    The Longhorn is back!

    Choose 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon or 60k Ultra set in private areas of Sherwood Forest & the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Park; next to a Grade1 listed 19th Century country house in north Nottinghamshire; Thoresby Hall.

    Running over old military roads, cleared tracks through ancient woodland and grassed paths around the country estate. The route includes a few hills to offer a small challenge around the course in the most scenic countryside & forest. The elevation is noted on the downloadable course map. The course has very firm hard ground if dry (2015) but if we get rain (or snow!) then there can also be considerable amount of muddy areas to run through (2016).

    A scenic late spring run starting from the Bewl Water Visitor Centre and following the Bewl round the reservoir route. Both courses are run on a combination of undulating rural wooded trail and along some quiet country lanes, with lovely views of the lake for most of the route.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      I really like the course itself, around Bewl water. Mostly on a trail, with only a few patches properly wet/slippery, it's a very enjoyable run.I personally liked the absence of distance markers. Disappointed with the food available at checkpoints but that's personal preference.Very disappointed with the finish though. There was barely anything, no celebration and no indication of your time...The start was also a complete shamble, with most runners not knowing where to go after the first mile...
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Terrible! It was a hard route due to the combination of trail with road, however, the views along the route were great. The GPS tracking shows the route was a mile over the 1/2 marathon distance, the race started 1/2 hour late due to not enough people checking runners in, the course was over crowded but the worst part of the day was getting to the finish line to be told they had run out of medals!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      The hills are very steep towards the end make sure you train for that. All the hills were right at the end of the course so brace for it.

    Endurancelife Classic Quarter – Cornwall

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Endurancelife Classic Quarter is a 44.5 mile Ultra Marathon along the south Cornish coast in the UK.

    First hosted in 2007 each year the event grows in global reputation.

    The task is brutally simple: to run non-stop from the southern most point of England (Lizard Point), to the western most tip (Land's End),along the legendary South West Coast Path. This translates to running 90 degrees of the compass, hence the name, Classic Quarter.

    The challenge can be undertaken as a solo, relay team of two, or relay of four. The atmosphere is of keen and friendly rivalry.

    Following 44 miles of the mesmerising South West Coast Path there are innumerable steep climbs and descents. This is the ultimate trail runner's rush, with spectacular exposure and challenging terrain all just a stones throw away from the potentially pounding Atlantic swells. There is also the unpredictable weather to contend with along the way and every runner must be well prepared, both mentally and physically.

      Was very unsure how the terrain was going to be and wished i paid more attention to the average pace give by Endurance life and their unrealistic cut off times.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The 'Marathon of the Coast' is run from St Dogmaels on the North Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion border and takes in the entire 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (The UKs only coastal National Park) and finishes at Amroth on the South Pembrokeshire / Carmarthenshire border.

    The path is made up mainly of rugged uneven ground which covers a diverse route that will see you run high along open and exposed sea cliffs as well as underneath them at sea level as you pass through the numerous fishing hamlets, villages and towns as well as taking you through some of the most iconic and historic locations in Wales.

    The course is visually stunning and due to the nature of the terrain and the elevation loss and gain being over 30,000ft it is also one of the most difficult you will run anywhere in the world. This really is a bucket list run!
