Continuing with our ethos of breaking down sporting barriers, Gold Events is proud to announce a new event to the shores of the Wirral Peninsular…….. Wirral Ultra & Bike Ride.
The 35 mile Ultra-Marathon will be fast and flat, meaning it is a great option for people looking to complete the distance for the first time. It will follow the Wirral Circular Trail in a loop of well trodden paths, with feed stations at regular points to help you through the journey.
A non competitive bike ride will also take place, so whether you want to support your friends and family running, or just want to take in the scenery, we have an option for you. As a cyclist you will also have access to the feedstations, facilities and be rewarded with a memento.
All of this on a really scenic and often untapped area of the country. What are you waiting for???
The 35 mile ultra-marathon follows the Wirral Circular Trail for approximately 35 miles.
The course is flat and follows well defined paths along the promenade and Wirral Way. Because of this, the race is ideal for runners looking to move up to ultra distance. You will see many sights on route, such as the Liverpool skyline, Fort Perch and numerous lighthouses.
We will look after you with 4 feed stations on the course. At the finish, you will be awarded with a memento to remember your day.
All of our events are chip timed. Spot prizes will be awarded in addition to winners awards.
What makes our event unique, is that family and friends can support you during the run by riding along side. See Bike Ride option.
