We've teamed up with ULTRA magazine again to bring you The Fox Ultra. A 60km circular ultra run route around Guildford. The route will be fully marked and offer 5 aid stops along the Fox Way. This scenic circular course was devised by Richard Fox, an avid local walker who was amazed by the beautiful and varied countryside he found along the route. Keen to share his findings, Richard set about signing and publicising his "Fox Way."
Relay - 3 person team with sections of 23km, 19km and 19km
Individual - 42km or 21km run. 10am time-trial starts
Head Wraps for all participants, medals for finishers!
