The Classic Quarter

Date & Location

Lizard Point, Cornwall

Organiser’s Description

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 - 90 degrees of the compass, hence the name Classic Quarter. Following 44 miles of this mesmerising 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 stone's throw away from the pounding Atlantic swells. There is also the unpredictable weather to contend with and every runner must be well prepared, both mentally and physically.
