Organiser's Description

The ORIGINAL coast path ultra run…

84 miles from Charmouth to Studland, over the world famous Jurassic coastline. A strict 24 hour time limit applies to complete the course. Self-navigate to check points along the coastline through the day and night. There is also a Third and Half ONER if you aren’t quite ready for the full distance.

This is a seriously tough event with only 50% of runners normally making it to the finish line.

Support runners / pacers
The idea of this race is to test yourself. It is understood that some people may require a little help to finish, this encouragement and support is done by the Brutal crew. It is against the ethos of the event to have support runners for multiple sections.

When this is done, there is no access to this bag until you get to CP6 / 8 (Portland) for the Half / Full Oner runners.

hints and Tips

Into the darkness
Half of this event will be in the dark, so make sure your navigation is on point, otherwise you may find yourself in a random field, a decent head torch is a must.

Get ready to get muddy
Nothing can prepare you for the coast path mud in April. This is not a race for road shoes, you need all the grip possible.
