Organiser's Description

This is the mother of all ultra trail runs. A triple coastal marathon over the World famous Jurassic coastline, with over ten thousand feet of ascent and a strict 24 hour time limit. This is a seriously tough event with only 50% of runners normally making it to the finish line. The weak need not apply! Runners are transferred to the start point in Charmouth, they then have 24 hours to run 82 miles over extremely challenging terrain to Studland, Poole. 82 miles. 24 hours. 2 feet.

Half and Third ONER distances available.
