UK Ultra & Trail-Run Explorers are bringing to you, guided runs along UK Ultra's event routes from 2023.
Our Reece runs are a great way to get some longer training runs in with company and also to familiarise yourself with the routes/terrain of the UK Ultra races.
The runs are available for both UK Ultra race entrants and anyone that wishes to come along for the day.
As all 4 of UK Ultra's races are essentially on parts of the same route at some point, they have been broken down into 7 separate runs covering in the region of 15-31 miles.
The runs are for all levels of fitness and will be run at a pace that is good for all. If you are a fast runner and want to shoot off at 6 min pace then this is probably not for you. Everyone will stay relatively close together throughout and essentially just enjoy the day/route.
The cost of each recce will be £12 for anyone signed up to one of the UK Ultra Event races and £15 for everyone else, £25 and £30 for the ultra distance recce. All of the runs will be point to point with runners having the choice of meeting at the start location, finish location or in Eastbourne where all UK Ultra Races finish. There will be a bus service in operation for each day that will travel from Eastbourne to the finish location of the run and then to the start, (See download for details).

To book a place on the bus the please email email@example.com A packed lunch will be included in the price for anyone that would like one and this will be available after the run has finished on the bus.One of UK Ultra Event Sponsors, Langham Hotel in Eastbourne, will be offering very cheap hotel stays for anyone that wishes to make a weekend of it.
Additional details about each recce will be sent out about 1 week before the run, option to join a recce specific WhatsApp group will also be available.
