Ran this 2018. A great course, challenging weather but lovely scenery. My first ultra and I was hugely impressed by the organisation from Foxlake. Great support and the best looking medal I've ever seen! Will be back.

If you like coastal running this race is for you. There are nice sections through the dunes and along the beach followed by green countryside. You are taken to the start by coach so parking and getting to the start is hassle free.

Ran this in 2017.
A thoroughly enjoyable race, well run and very well marshalled. Not too undulating but very changing surfaces make it an interesting experience. will consider it again next year.
