The ONER Ultra Trail Run

April 13th - 14th 2019 - Portland, Dorset

This is the mother of all ultra trail runs! 82 miles over the world famous Jurassic coastline with over ten thousand foot of ascent and a strict 24 hour time limit. This is a seriously tough event with only 50% of runners normally making it to the finish line.

The organisation, crew and logistics are incomparably superb and the coastal route is simply stunning.

- Nick Hanlon-Brooks - 2013

The HQ is based on Portland (DT5 2AN - this will be clearly signed from all directions on Portland!) and runners are transferred to the start point in Charmouth. You then have 24 hours to run 82 miles over extremely challenging terrain to Studland, Poole.

All runners supplied with a tracking device for safety (link available for family / friends to view your progress). Hot meals available at the halfway point and all other checkpoints have food / hot drinks. Check points are approximately every 10k
