Race to the Stones 100K An ultra along the oldest path in Britain

The Ridgeway is the oldest path in Britain and one of the most scenic trails to run on in the country. It has endured for 5,000 years of which runners have to last 100km of ancient chalk trails. It is the biggest and most iconic ultra marathon in the UK.

Spanning from the Chilterns in Oxfordshire to the North Wessex Downs, the Ridgeway is the oldest path in Britain. For 5,000 years men and women have left their marks on the chalk paths and woodland tracks making it one of the most fascinating routes within the UK. However, it isn’t just the history which makes the Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones a unique challenge, the route runs almost entirely within designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views to inspire you.

This weekend, 11 and 12 July, the race is on once again offering a variety of options for those wanting to complete the challenge. You can do the whole 100km in one go, or for those who prefer the daytime to the dark, there is the chance to break the route in two and we will lay on a full camp for them to relax in overnight.

Here is a recap of the 2014 edition.
