50km Ultra Trail

Take on the idyllic Kent countryside in this scenic ultra. Our fully marked route will guide you through an array of picturesque villages and attractive trails in one brilliant 50km loop.

Our event base sits a short distance from the Eden Valley trail that links Penshurst, Hever and Edenbridge and provides the perfect start/finish for this unique route.

With around 925 metres of elevation change, this is for the most part a very runnable ultra. However our hilly mid section will test you climbing ability before you weave your way back to finish line.
