Race Organiser

The Leicestershire Round is a 100-mile trail tour around the County of Leicestershire. We have split this into 3 individual ultramarathons to cover the full distance in a series of events, with a Spring Summer series.

This event, Leg 2, starts off at Glooston village hall, Market Harborough. From there you will pass through a number of small villages and towns to include Cranoe, Hallaton, Belton-in-Rutland, Owston, Somerby, through Burrough Hill country park, Thorpe Satchville, Gaddesby, Frisby on the Wreake, Hoby, Thrussington, Rearsby and finish Cossington Village Hall.

The Leicestershire Round route is waymarked. The course will also have flag markers.

The scenery on the route is beautiful and well worth taking some photos (which can be showcased on our gallery page).
Please be aware that you will also be running over different terrain and some spots on the route could be quite uneven on the foot and quite boggy at times.
