55km Ultra Marathon for Solo Runners, Walkers, and Teams
The Old Harry Ultra is a brand new event and is a bit different from the others. Firstly, there's a lot more road. Secondly there's a lot less hills (maximum of 400m elevation in total!) It's a journey around the harbour from one side of the Sandbanks chain ferry crossing to the other (the long way round!)
The route is split into 4 main sections:
- Harbour/Quayside - (start to Aid 1) - 12km (10km tarmac / 2km flat trail)
- Town/Forest - (Aid 1 to Aid 2) - 15km (2km flat trail / 6km tarmac paths / 7km trail)
- Forest/Farmland/River - (Aid 2 to Aid 3) - 15.5km (a mix of 11.5km trail and 4km tarmac; the longest being 2km)
- Heathland/Dunes/Beach (Aid 3 to FINISH) - 12.5km (All trail apart from 2 short bits of tarmac and some sand)
Solo Runners & Walkers £55
Teams of 2 £65, Teams of 4 £80
