The Oner - Rab's Ultra
On Saturday, around 100 runners will be transported from Race HQ in Portland to their starting point in Charmouth, Dorset. From midday, they will have up to 24 hours to run the 82 miles back to Portland along the Jurassic coastline.

This won't be easy - last year's winners recorded times of 18:45:09 (Anthony Gerundini) and 19:47:09 (Josephine Adams), with most finishers taking considerably longer. The DNF rate tends to be around 50%. Last year, 34/64 men and 5/10 women were able to complete the route within the time limit.

The Jurassic coastline is beautiful but brutal. Runners will climb over 10,000 feet and encounter tricky terrain and considerable hours of darkness. However, all 4 of our runner reviewers awarded the event 5 stars, praising the organisation and scenery and confirming how tough a challenge it is (but ultimately worth it).

Good luck to all this year's runners.

RE:The Oner - Rab's Ultra
This year's race looks to have been a very successful one with 59 finishers and 34 showing as DNFs. Ashley Scott and Andy Sloan smashed the course record to finish together in 16:02. Craig Clements finished third in 17:48. Ann Troup was fourth overall and first female in a phenomenal 17:59. That was over 2.5 hours ahead of second female Laura Appleby. Melanie Austreng was third in 20:50:12.
