We are very pleased to announce that our fantastic Stort30 Ultramarathon event now incorporates the "UK Trail Running Championship" Middle Distance event.


We try to keep value for money a priority so all our events are priced to be affordable but still offer a well organised and supported event with great prizes and checkpopoints staffed by great volunteers who really want you to finish.
