The Stour Valley Path is a 100km (62 mile) long footpath in England, which starts in Newmarket (Suffolk) and ends in Cattawade, a village near Manningtree (Essex). The SVP100 covers almost the entire length of the well marked trail, and is one of the longest point to point races in East Anglia.
Ultramarathons in Cambridge, East of England
The Run Fest started out as just the Ultra event, and in 2014 became the Run Fest and added two other distances on the same day. So you now have the choice of the Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra. Its flat, the route is well marked and there is support on the course. With a few obstacles (steps, stiles, cattle grids) along the way, this is more of an adventure / fun (yes you read right) course than one to chase a PB on.
Ely Tri Club have taken ownership of what used to be the Monster Racing Runfest. Course and format will be the same with Half Marathon, Marathon and Ultra distance races.
The Kings Forest is just 4 miles outside Bury St Edmunds, easily accessible from East Anglia, London and the East Midlands. Provides a wonderful traffic free course on forest tracks.
The Stort 30 is a very pretty out and back 30 miles (15 each way) along the River Stort Navigation Channel in Hertfordshire.
This is a 100k timed event that will run 10 x 10k out and back sections along the Flitch Way in Essex. It is primarily aimed at a time qualifier for those who need one for Spartathlon later in the year BUT anyone can come and run it as long as you are happy you can run inside the cut-off. The cutoff is 12hours - you will be stopped if you get over this but can run up to that time.
Take part on this event which consist of 3 marathons in 3 consecutive days.
