Meangate participant smile 2016Meangate Ultra Endurance Run

Meangate Ultra is a new 12-hour, night time, trail, endurance run.  Runners enter to take up the challenge of running as far as they can throughout the night. 

Building on the success of the Meangate OCR, Meangate Ultra takes place on the night of Saturday, 4 November to the morning of Sunday, 5 November 2017. 

Runners can enter individually, or in teams of four, but the concept is the same: run as many laps of the cross country course as you can before the time runs out.

The minimum age for participants is 14, but any runners under 18 must participate with a responsible adult and cannot run alone at any point during the event.

Meangate Ultra features a floodlit campsite area on the Deangate Ridge driving range, varied and well-stocked fuel stations, chip timing, hot drinks, marshals and first aid. 

Entry costs £30 per runner or £100 per team of four. Entry includes free parking, free camping, entry to the golf course clubhouse and changing rooms, fuel stations and your Meangate Ultra medal including distance pin badges.
