The Fox with ULTRA Magazine
Wilfrid Noyce Centre, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1DY
Congratulations to everyone who took on the inaugural Fox Ultra. Thank you for joining us. We hope you had a brilliant run. Race results and photos.
We've teamed up with ULTRA magazine to bring you the Fox Ultra. A 60km circular ultra run route around Guildford.
The route will be fully marked and offer 5 aid stops along the Fox Way. This scenic circular course was devised by Richard Fox, an avid local walker who was amazed by the beautiful and varied countryside he found along the route. Keen to share his findings, Richard set about signing and publicising his "Fox Way."
Other options include:
Relay - 3 person team with sections of 18km, 22km and 20km
