Een trail van Lizard Point naar Lands End in Cornwall. Twee UTMB punten.
Van de website:
The Endurancelife Classic Quarter Ultra Marathon was first hosted in 2007 with great success. The idea for the event was originally conjured up by an enterprising Cornish businessman, surfer and Ďreluctant' endurance athlete.
One day whilst out on his regular local trail running route around Lizard Point, he could just make out Lands End in the far distance, and he wondered...
He wondered whether he might be able to run there, in one go, non stop? He concluded that with some solid training and a good dose of bloody mindedness, it could be, and should be done. He also concluded that it would be a great way to raise some funds for a very worthy organisation, Cornwall Hospice Care. Endurancelife were invited to get the challenge off the ground, and the 'Classic Quarter' was born.
The task is brutally simple. To run non-stop from the southern most point, to the western most tip of Cornwall (and England!), along the legendary South West Coast Path! That translates to moving through 90 degrees of the compass from Lizard Point to Lands End, hence the name, Classic Quarter!
The course follows 44 miles of the mesmerising SW Coast Path with innumerable climbs and descents. It is the ultimate trail runnerís rush, with spectacular exposure and challenging terrain all just a stones throw away from the potentially pounding Atlantic swells. There is also the unpredictable weather to contend with along the way and every runner must be well prepared, both mentally and physically.
The Classic Quarter can be attempted by well prepared solo runners, relay teams of two, or relay teams or four. The event is known for its fantastic atmosphere and the keen and friendly rivalry that abounds.
