The UK’s Favourite night race since 2012!
We have had a resounding success in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. It is an event which participants described as “the best ultra they have ever entered”, The Grim Sweeper will be back to claim more souls in 2017 and this time he wants cake as well your soul. It’s a very special 6th birthday edition, because, possibly just for one time only Dusk til Dawn is going on tour to a new location, Church Stretton; The Shropshire Hills! Just as in 2015 and 2016, as well as the 50 mile ultra, there is also a 13 mile half-marathon, a 26 ish mile marathon course.
Oh, just one more thing… It was all beginning to sound a little too cosy wasn’t it? There’s one character the longer you need to keep looking over your shoulder for. Timing his progress along the whole course with the arrival of dawn, is the Grim Sweeper! If the Grim Sweeper catches you up, then you could be facing retirement for an early breakfast (we did ask if he’d leave his scythe at home but we’re not convinced he will…each year he sends more than 25% of souls to the afterlife with a sweep of his scythe!). All we can say, is don’t let him catch you up!
