Monarchs Way Ultra

May 18th 2019 10am

Please note the Monarchs Way is the only event we hold that does not carry a UKA (TRA) permit as its a little outside the box.

615 miles non stop on Britain's longest inland path, can it be run in one go?

 

We think it is possible........and it is just.............

 

In 2016, 3 very experienced runners attempted it and all retired by day 4.

 

In 2017 3 Very experienced Runners attempted it and 2 made it to 10 days but then retired.

 

In 2018 11 very experienced runners started and only 3 finished

 

(See the hall of fame)

 

Are there any other ultras in the UK that have a 0% finish rate (so far)?

Averaging 43 miles every 24 hours for 14 days solid.

 

This is the longest non stop race of its kind in Britain.

 

Don't confuse this with multi day racing or staged runs, you start running then you stop when you are finished or at the finish! The clock never stops until you are done.

 

You decide where to sleep and when as long as you are within the cut offs, no crew, no dedicated pacers or outside support allowed. If you want a cuddle and an easy challenge do one of our smaller races! 

 

There will be checkpoint locations manned by race crew who will look after you very well, they will be about every 40-50 miles and will have your spare kit and supplies for you. 

This should mean you get to your spare kit and food at least once every 20 - 30 hours.

 

This is a real challenge and not to be taken on board casually, its right on the edge of what's possible with a great deal of effort and commitment. 

 

It's an epic challenge - and not just for the runners - it is interesting to organise too. 

 

With the logistics involved, this event is only open to a maximum of 20 entries with some of those entries held for returning runners should they be mad enough to come back.
