SATURDAY 8TH JULY 2023
We’re excited to announce the return of our ultra-running event for 2023, bringing back all of the most popular elements of our ultra-cycling events to those who prefer to exercise on foot.
We’ll still be bringing you all the elements of our rides that you’ve come to know and love - breathtaking routes, high-quality feed stations and a fantastic atmosphere. We’re determined to make event even better on its return to the Malvern Hare Weekend and look forward to seeing you out on the trail!
We will start and finish at Fish Meadow Farm, just over the bridge from the historic riverside town of Upton-On-Severn, Worcestershire, WR8 0PB.
Travelling north out of Fish Meadow and along the River Severn, the route then cuts southwest to the Victorian Spa Town of Great Malvern and then ascends onto the scenic Malvern Hills and along the ridge line.
You’ll be treated to spectacular views of the surrounding area and reach the highest point of the trail at 425m at the Worcestershire Beacon. If you can join us for 100 miles in the saddle, you can definitely do 60km on foot around our amazing route for the Upton Ultra!
With a mix of established national trails, bridal ways, footpaths, river banks and connecting tarmac roads, each stage of the route will bring you through different terrain and scenery. From open hills, grassy meadows, sprawling commons, wooded paths and expanses of the floodplain - the Upton Ultra has it all!
Each leg will be clearly marked and there are three checkpoints at 15km, 30km and 42km which will have a variety of food and drinks.
OPEN TO ALL LEVELS - NO CUT OFF TIMES
The event is open to people of all levels from first-timers to pros, and there will be NO cut-off times to ensure everyone who takes part has a chance to complete the route by running or walking.
We look forward to welcoming you to our back to our ultra running event!
