1 Day - 1000 Runners

DIFFICULTY Race Difficulty Beginner  

Entry From £80 GBP

We are London's only 24-hour trail race. If you've run TR24 or Endure 24 or the like, think that, but probably with better 3G signal and a flyby from an actual Spitfire!

Ultra runners competing in the solo category receive priority camping space and dedicated fuel table near your own start/finish exit.

Rest when you need to, run as much as you like. The course is just under 6 miles, a mixture of trail, grass, gravel and a little tarmac. There is one winding gradient near the finish and one short, sharp slope but no singificant hills other than those two.

The male course record is 20 laps in 24 hours, with the female record standing at 18.

Catering available, showers available, camping is free, parking is free.

Just completed my second year Spitfire Scramble, a nice 10k route run as many lap as you can within 24hours as a team or individual. A perfect introduction to ultra running, night running and safe ground to push your limit break as you need to.
