Saturday the 23rd of April 2016 will be the launch date for a brand new and ultra-exciting event on the running calendar; The John Muir Way Ultra Marathon. The race will be delivered by the experienced Team who have brought you the FoxTrail Winter Running Series.

The John Muir Ultra Marathon is going to creating a fantastic opportunity for new and entry level Ultra Runners to take the plunge and sign up for a new, big challenge.
