The 100k Foxton Hound Ultra takes runners on a journey through the beautiful countryside and villages that surround Market Harborough as they traverse the Harborough Round long distance footpath through Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. 

The course has some fantastic views, as well as places of historical and cultural interest, including Houghton on the Hill, West Haddon, Coton and Stoke Albany as well as visiting Foxton Locks and the Naseby Battle Field.

The race offers a challenge for seasoned ultra runners, as well as providing a great stepping stone for those looking to go beyond 50k or 50 miles towards longer distances in the future.

The route enjoys some decent elevation, but there’s some lovely downhills as well to compensate (!), and intersects with, or uses parts of,  The Jurassic Way, The Leicestershire Round, The Macmillan Way, The Midshires Way, The Richard the Third Trail, and The Uppingham Round.
