Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones 2020
Our award winning endurance event is back and ready for action in 2020. With it’s incredible scenery, challenging route and second-to-none support, Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is the premier ultra marathon event.
The Ridgeway offers something very special. Lined with Bronze Age hill forts, Neolithic burial chambers and Roman river crossings, you will step in the same footsteps as travellers who lived over 5,000 years ago. All you need to decide is whether to take it on without stopping or go for the two day weekend option.
Just like the Romans thousands of years ago, have you got what it takes to conquer the 100km trail?

Perhaps the best beginner friendly ultra in the UK!
If you've never run along the Ridgeway before, you'll know it's beautiful. It's amazing to think that it's so close to London, so green and peaceful is the route and its surroundings.
It didn't help that it was ridiculously hot (it was the year that SAS soldiers were dropping with heat exhaustion whilst on exercise), so we all suffered a little. But the standout feature of the race was the quality of the staff. The guys at Threshold Sports know how to put on a good event.
Atmosphere, quality of the aid stations, the medal, the staff, the route - it's all five stars!
If you're hesitating. Don't. It's simply a fabulous experience and what better way to pop your ultra cherry, than being looked after by Threshold Sports.
Coming 2nd in the race - that was just a bonus!!
