"The best ultra trail series! I have done three of these now and each one gets better. The events are SO well supported, the routes are stunning and the people who attend them are the friendliest. It’s just small touches like the Threshold Crew dotted around the course giving support, the MC cheering you in, the amazing pit stops and the cheeky signs on course. If you’re thinking of doing an ultra, let it be this one!"

"Without doubt the best organised event I have ever been to. From start to finish we were looked after and treated like kings. The pit stops were better stocked than my local corner shop and had everything you could wish for. The overnight camp was like a spa break on the Downs great food, bar, showers, massage tent and much more!"
