Meangate welcome banner

Meangate is our extreme cross country brand for the rolling hills and woods of Deangate Ridge Sports Complex.

It includes the Meangate obstacle course and the new Meangate Ultra Endurance Run

Meangate 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 5km course as you can before the time runs out.

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

To enter your team use the guest booking option on our booking system.
