A 15-year-old hilly run attracting the very best and most fun-loving of runners.

Beesands, South Devon

Distance: 6.9 miles, 13.2 miles, 27.5 miles, 34.3 miles

This is where the Coastal Trail Series was born - the South Devon stage has become a cult classic. The course is contained within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is simultaneously picturesque and punishing. With its blend of jagged rocks interspersed with idyllic sandy coves, this coastline is jaw-droppingly beautiful and hugely inspiring.;The South Devon 10k, half, full and ultra-marathon events sell out every year, and you’ll soon see why as you weave your way around the technical coastline, before heading inland to tackle a few of the infamous Devon hills!

Farnham, Surrey

Distance: 66 miles;2 days

Following the route of the North Downs Way National Trail, the Pilgrim Challenge is firmly established as one of our best loved multi-stage ultra races. This, the oldest trade route in England, was used by Pilgrims heading for Winchester, Canterbury, Dover and the Continent. This 66 mile ultra follows a glorious section of the ancient route, from Farnham through to Merstham, in Surrey, passing through picturesque villages and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Whether this is your first ultra of your 100th, the stunning scenery of the North Downs will take your breath away and take you to new limits. 1/2 February.

Cuxton, Rochester, Kent

Distance: 3.7 - 4.4 mile loops;8 hours

The Ranscombe Challenge doesn’t quite fit in with our quest to bring you flat or mud free courses, but when you run around this beautiful rural reserve, on rolling trails amidst an array of wildflowers, wildlife and views over Kent and the Medway, you’ll understand why we couldn’t resist the detour! In fact the area is so pretty we thought we’d give you the opportunity to savour it for longer, and twice! This event has a time limit of eight hours to run as many of the 3.7 - 4.4 mile loops as you wish! It’ll be February, it’ll be hilly, it’ll very likely involve some mud! Events 1 & 2 February.;On the Saturday we’ll have the classic Green Route, the hillier of the two, and this will feature the first of the new Ranscombe medal series! On the Sunday we’ll have a Random Ranscombe, with the Red Route, slightly flatter, probably less muddy, but it will likely still be muddy, and definitely still quite hilly! The medals for Sunday will be from our box of random Ranscombe medals.

Longhope, Gloucester

Distance: 9 miles;15 miles

A 9 mile tough cross-country run thats starts and finishes with a tough climb up May Hill in Gloucestershire. Throw in some very muddy trails, some great scenery and the open plain at the top of May Hill and you have a recipe for a must-do challenge run. Bragging rights are yours as you return back down the Hill to claim your well-earned medal. The event starts and finishes on the private Huntley Estate, Gloucester. The event sells out every year so we have added an extra day, so you have the option to run on the Saturday or Sunday, or both if you are brave enough!;Limited to the Sunday you also have the option of the 15 miles Massacre - the choice is yours. 1/2 February.
