The JOGLE ULTRA 2011 takes runners to a whole new level of endurance running - 55+ miles/day for 15 consecutive days is a huge undertaking for any Ultra Runner and a massive personal challenge.
The 16 competitors will be living on a luxury rock-and-roll sleeper coach with its own onboard chef. They will enjoy 16 days out on the open roads of Scotland, England and Wales.
The route has a million highlights and countless places of beauty and interest and along the way. The route reaches England at halfway and the turn for home as you cross the Severn Bridge back into England really puts the scale of the UK into perspective.
The route follows the classic journey from John O'Groats to Lands End. The route through Scotland follows the A9 down to Inverness, then follows Loch Ness to Fort William, up through the idyllic Glencoe Pass onto Glasgow and then through the lowlands to cross the border.
From here, the route goes over the Shap 'wall' along the A6 down to Ludlow where we cross over into Wales. The old Severn Bridge welcomes runners back into England and the turn for home down through Taunton, Okehampton, St. Austell and Cornwall's famous Lands End landmark and the finish tape.
It's a sweet finish to a long and winding road.
Everything is catered for so that every runner gets the best opportunity to reach Lands End. The journey might be hard... reaching Lands End is simply unforgettable, and for the winner will be all the sweeter for they will be driving home in a brand new Chevrolet Spark.
