Course Details

Our 50km route starts from the Shuttleworth Estate following a cross country route on private trails.

Runners then complete an anti-clockwise loop passing through Old Warden, Haynes, Clophill, Chicksands, Shefford and Broom.

The terrain and surrounding countryside is varied, eyecatching and undulating throughout. This makes the course extremely runnable and a great choice for anyone aiming to complete their first ultra.

The whole route is marked with orange arrows and ribbons

FAQs

Route navigation

This race will be fully marked, with our orange arrow markers and ribbons.

Additionally, marshals will be positioned on the route, in locations we deem difficult to maneuver yourself.

We do ask all runners to carry a digital version of the route, either on a watch or phone, just in case you find yourself off route.

*What happens if I get lost?*

Retrace your steps, looking out for a left/right turn that you may have missed.

If you have the GPS track on your watch or phone or are carrying a route map, consult this to help find the correct path.

If this fails, please call the event phone number.

Sometimes signage gets tampered with, if you think this is the case please alert the race director via the event phone number.

Remember, successfully navigating yourself around the route, is part of the challenge in a trail race, keep your head up and look out for signs at all times.
