Description

    WHAT

We teamed up with ULTRA magazine again to bring you The Fox Ultra. A 60km circular ultra run route around Guildford.

The route will be fully marked and offer 5 aid stops along the Fox Way. This scenic circular course was devised by Richard Fox, an avid local walker who was amazed by the beautiful and varied countryside he found along the route. Keen to share his findings, Richard set about signing and publicising his "Fox Way."

Other events:

Relay - 3 person team with sections of 19.5km, 21.8km and 21.2km

Individual - 42km or 21km run. 10 am time-trial starts

Head Wraps for all participants, medals for finishers!

Our charity partner is The Meath Epilepsy Charity which you can make a donation to when registering online for the race.

The Meath has supported people living with complex epilepsy and associated disabilities for over 125 years. Following their last unannounced inspection, the Meath joined the top 1% of care homes to receive an 'Outstanding' CQC rating. The Meath take great pride in providing the best quality of life possible in a homely, yet highly professional environment. Residents are encouraged to fully embrace opportunities as members of their local community. The friendly staff teams assist residents to manage their epilepsy, gain valuable vocational and everyday life skills and to live fulfilled and healthy lives as independently as possible.
