The UK's #1 ultra trail marathon

Race to the Stones, 13-14 July

Race to the Stones is a fully-supported ultra trail marathon along The Ridgeway, England's oldest path. Vikings, Romans, dragons & Kings have walked The Ridgeway for over 5,000 years. Now it's your turn.

This is a challenge for everyone - choose to camp over the weekend or take on the full 100km challenge in one go!

Unlike some self-sufficient ultra marathons, everything is taken care of, from bag transfers to hot meals.
