  • 43 miles trail running


A fabulous 43 mile point to point race well established as the season opener to the Ultra race calendar.

This is historically a sell out event that  takes you through the stunning Buckinghamshire countryside and crossing the M25 (by bridge of course!).

Make your way through the picturesque village of Denham where you'll pick up the Grand Union Canal tow path for the final run into London.

The finish is at the Little Venice canal basin a surprising tranquil setting but in the heart of London next to Paddington station. This will be a fully tracked and interactive race so friends and family will be able to follow your progress from the comfort of their armchairs – and also you can make sure that you are following the route! 

This event is proud to be an Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc index race.

To add to the excitement it's not unusual to find runners from literally all over the world on the start line.
