Tower to Castle Ultra 30



Age 18 & over

  • 30 miles trail running


A unique event, taking in a stunning course from Blackpool Tower to Lancaster Castle following the coastal way… with a twist! To cross the estuary, we have teamed up with the Fleetwood Ferry Company for the short hop across the water from Fleetwood to Knott End. Varying start times based on your estimted finish time ensures a smooth crossing across the estuary. Runners start this adventure from the world-famous Comedy Carpet in the shadow of the tower and you have a maximum of 8 hours to reach the finish line at Lancaster Castle. No mean feat, but achievable with guts and determination. The course is well marked and features four checkpoints along the way. The run is suitable for beginners wanting to try an ultra and for seasoned ultra-runners looking for a PB over the distance. Total event distance is 30 miles. Blingtastic medal & event hoodie to all finishers!
