I was hoping to do an Ultra on Feb 3rd but now due to a dates clash, no can do. Anyone know of any decent Ultra events mid to late Feb or in March? Ideally within 50 miles of Oxfordshire.

Green Man Ultra in Bristol on 3rd March - 46 mile countryside loop. Great and difficult mostly trail course, if getting a little busy

24th of Feb ok?
I've done the half and it's quite flat as the route is mostly along the coast

Can't seem to find any details of the Polarbear Express. Any ideas?

Top secret atm Wink
Out and back mostly on the Downs Link. Start on North Downs just outside Guildford, turnaround (and marathon finish) at West Grinstead. Relatively easy going compared to many, with a bit of a sting in the tail.

Very Happy Don't worry it won't be Apple pricing.

The Polar Bear team are helping with the Mince Pi Run but it should be open end of the week/ early next week.

Alright! Saturday 10th Feb. Guildford to West Grinsted and back. More down hill going, more uphill coming back but not nearly as much climbing as typical NDW, SDW, coastal path runs. The point to point marathon is almost like going down a slide Laughing

Website issues will take a little while to sort but www.facebook.com/polarbearexpressultra/ will keep you updated.
