the guernsey ultra

14th may 2023

GU36 – Sunday 14th May 2023

A 36 mile, fully marked, mixed terrain race around the island of Guernsey. The circular route starts in the picturesque town of St. Peter Port before leading on to 16 miles of beautifully rugged cliffs. From here it is fairly flat going along the west coast, where you will enjoy the view of the sweeping bays and beaches. At around mile 25 there will be another fully stocked checkpoint and kiosk to replenish you before continuing around the north coast of the island and finally the east coast back to St Peter Port and the finish.
This is an ideal race for those wanting to step up to ultra distance. With the checkpoints further apart than you may be used to when running marathons, this will accustom you to the more self-sufficient way that most ultra races are run.

Although the 2023 event is full, we usually have lots of people pull out, so if you are interested please join the wait list.
