Voted one of the best events in the UK by runners in the independent RaceCheck Awards in 2018 & 2019, come and explore one of Surrey’s least-known trails – The Fox Way – to which this award-winning, long-distance running event owes its name.


A popular alternative to the London Marathon, The Fox Ultra presents runners with a unique opportunity to circumnavigate Guildford, anti-clockwise in April and clockwise in September (via Godalming, Puttenham, Worplesdon, Send, Clandon and Blackheath) – an impressive claim to tick off of 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.

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.


Entry on the Day will be available at this event.


This event will not be Licensed.
