Organiser's Description

THE FOX TRAIL HALF MARATHON, MARATHON & ULTRA MARATHON!

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE RETURN OF THE FOX ULTRA-MARATHON, MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON EVENT AROUND GUILDFORD ON SATURDAY 27TH MAY 2023!

-The Fox Ultra presents runners with a unique opportunity to circumnavigate Guildford, clockwise (via Godalming, Puttenham, Worplesdon, Send, Clandon and Blackheath) – an impressive claim to tick off any runner’s bucket list.

The circular 62km ultramarathon – which can be completed individually or as part of a 3-stage relay team – is supported with 5 aid stations and showcases some of the very best views that the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer; from woodlands, grasslands, and farmlands to urban and river-side scenery – this event truly has it all.

The Ultra route follows the Fox Way for the majority of the course. The marathon course starts at the Joly Farmer Pub and follows the Fox Way clockwise through to Godalming, the Half Marathon route begins at Clandon Train station and follows the final 21km section of the route to our Godalming finish. Marathon and Half Marathon events set off later in the morning and follow shorter sections of this picturesque, mixed-terrain route so that all runners unite at the same finish line in Godalming.

– The Fox Way covers a range of terrain, from grassy farm fields at Shackleford, to sandy trails
at Whitmore and Blackheath Commons, canal pathway past Ripley, to beautiful bluebell
woods near Bramley village.

Start Times:
Ultra/Ultra Relay (Teams of 3) – 7am – Starting from Godalming United Reformed Church
Marathon – 9am – Starting from the Jolly Farmer in Worplesdon
Half Marathon – 10am – Starting from West Clandon Train Station

CUPLESS AID STATIONS
