Ready To Enter?

To qualify you must have completed at least an ultra distance event, 30 miles and over (12 hour and over events are fine too), since January 2018.  Note: Any applicant not conforming to this rule will be placed on the reserve list until such a time as they inform the race director of their qualifying ultra distance event.  The event recognises LDWA events.   racedirector@ridgewaychallenge.com

Prices and Start Times 2019


From 2019 and onwards runners will be able to choose if they have a T-shirt. Some runners would prefer reduced entry than have a T-shirt - now they can. This makes the event as little as £62/64.


Entries to 31st May 2019 (Early-bird discount)



Entries between 1st June 2019 to 2nd August 2019 (Standard price)



T-shirts are £8


*Affiliated members are either members of the TRA or registered with UK Athletics. This entry fee includes the £2 reduction from the entry fee in accordance with the UK Athletics Rules.


Start Times


There are two start times:

10:00 for runners expecting to take more than 24 hours with a total cut-off time of 28 hours.

12:00 for runners wanting to compete in the UK Trail Running Championships Ultra Distance.  The total time allowed for 12:00 runners is 26 hours.  Finishers receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals.


Runners collect their number and T-shirt, if ordered, at the registration point. All finishers receive a finisher medal.
