For those of you who like your trail running Feats to be BIG, we give to you the Classic Element Race Series. Four trail running events based on the 4 classic elements Air, Water, Fire and Earth. Whether it’s running under never-ending sky (Air), battling over ancient rugged coastline (Water), pushing yourself on under a relentless sun (Fire) or clawing over muddy hills and through rainy valleys (Earth), BigFeat Events have developed a series of races that will challenge you, Awaken you and Inspire you.
———————————————
Symbolizing the classic element Air and with 2 distance to choose from ; Marathon or 60km Ultramarathon, BigSky is the 1st event to be released in the Classic Element Race Series and will start just after sunrise from Hyde Common, one of the highest points of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire. As dawn becomes day and your race begins, you’ll set off under a dome of Southern England sky, with views that stretch from horizon to horizon. You’ll navigate wide open plains and winding forest trails, cross rivers and waterways, rolling fields and even towering sand dunes. On both courses, runners will pass Rockford Common,, Fritham Plain, Nomansland, Deadmans Hill and Godshill. At the course split, the 60km Ultramarathon will depart Hope Cottage and cross the border into the vast farmlands of Wiltshire, before crossing the River Avon at the weir to the West of Trafalgar Park, following the river to Downton and then returning to the National Park at Godshill Enclosure. Here the Ultra meets the marathon course and runners are treated to a final climb up Cockley Hill, before the thrilling run along Hampton Ridge to the finish, where they’ll receive a bespoke event medal and be able to finally sit down, relax with a cold drink and reflect on a wonderful day on the trails.
