The Fox Ultra presents runners with a unique opportunity to circumnavigate Guildford, clockwise (via Godalming, Puttenham, Worplesdon, Send, Clandon and Blackheath) – an impressive claim to tick off any runner’s bucket list.
The circular 62km ultramarathon – which can be completed individually or as part of a 3-stage relay team – is supported with 5 aid stations and showcases some of the very best views that the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer; from woodlands, grasslands, and farmlands to urban and river-side scenery – this event truly has it all.
The Ultra route follows the Fox Way for the majority of the course. The marathon course starts in Worplesdon and follows the Fox Way clockwise through to Godalming, the Half Marathon route begins in West Clandon and follows the final 21km section of the route to our Godalming finish. Marathon and Half Marathon events set off later in the morning and follow shorter sections of this picturesque, mixed-terrain route so that all runners unite at the same finish line in Godalming.
