In to its third year. The Swindon Ultra Trail is a great test for beginners and experienced ultra runners alike.
The route takes in some amazing views around the town. From a section of the Ridgeway, Barbury Castle and Bincknoll Castle.
The first third of the event is all hills and walking gates, followed by a few sections of urban areas, a small canal section and then back to some local, flat trails.
We offer three, well stocked aid stations, free parking at the start/finish area, eco friendly medals and very generous cut offs.
And new for this year, there is a 19km “mini ultra” for runners who want the hilly test, without the 50km distance. This starts at the same place and finishes at Barbury Castle.
It may be a little biased, but I think this race should be having a lot more entrants each year.
