Organiser's Description

Starting and finishing at St Martha's, Guildford, this run features some of the best parts of the North Downs Way and surrounding areas, including the infamous Box Hill.

You will be guided by myself, an experienced ultra runner, running coach and Salomon athlete. This run is perfect as your first taste of ultra running, the route is taken care of and you will get the chance to learn from an experienced ultra runner, and get any running questions you may have answered.

We will explore the trails of the Surrey Hills, passing through small villages, offering beautiful views of the downs, before heading up onto the downs. We'll pass through Denbies Wine Estate before reaching our target, the top of Box Hill. Here we will grab a drink and some cake, take a breather and enjoy the fantastic views. We'll then make our way back to Guildford, following the North Downs Way 'westbound' before arriving at Newland's Corner and St Martha's church.

Pace: This is not a race! We will run as a group and share this experience together. I advise that you have run at least 22 miles in training before trying this event. You should be able to comfortably run an average pace of 10 min/miles | 6 min/km for prolonged periods of time on the trail, and have a suitable level of fitness. Ultra running first timers encouraged!
