General Information


We teamed up with ULTRA magazine again 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."

Support your running with strength training. Check out the official training plan from Field of Fitness HERE.

Other events:
Relay - 3 person team with sections of 19.5km, 21.8km and 21.2km

Individual - 42km or 21km run. 10 am time-trial starts

Head Wraps for all participants, medals for finishers!

Our charity partner is The Meath Epilepsy Charity which you can make a donation to when registering online for the race.

The Meath has supported people living with complex epilepsy and associated disabilities for over 125 years. Following their last unannounced inspection, the Meath joined the top 1% of care homes to receive an 'Outstanding' CQC rating. The Meath take great pride in providing the best quality of life possible in a homely, yet highly professional environment. Residents are encouraged to fully embrace opportunities as members of their local community. The friendly staff teams assist residents to manage their epilepsy, gain valuable vocational and everyday life skills and to live fulfilled and healthy lives as independently as possible.

What to wear

This is a trail-race, therefore, we recommend trail-running shoes are worn. For this race, we recommend our prize sponsors Salming and Trekking and Outdoors in Shere. You'll want to wear sturdy and worn-in running shoes to make sure your feet can cope. For the best results make sure to take advantage of their free and professional shoe-fitting service. 

For maximum comfort - and to avoid getting blisters - ensure you wear a proper pair of running socks. aat events recommend Hilly Socks. To learn more about Hilly Socks click HERE

You must be aware of your surroundings and be able to hear marshalls at all times. Therefore the only recommended earphones are Aftershockz bone-conducting earphones - the only earphones to be approved by United Kingdom Athletics. Click HERE for aat-events earphone policy. 

Extra Kit:
In our attempts to reduce one-use plastics we have a couple of suggestions. Firstly, to wear clothing with pockets or a run-belt to carry a cup, buy the aat cup HERE. Or you can support yourself with a water pack.

A waterproof is required in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. Participants are likely to be out on the course for a long time and keeping dry will make the run easier. 

For safety reasons, we also recommend that participants bring a fully charged mobile phone.
