3 Days | 13,695ft of Vertical Ascent | 131Miles on Foot


The Challenge

Ring O’ Fire is a 131 mile ultra marathon circumnavigating the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales.
This epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days (31 August 2012 – 2 September 2012) and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path around the island. The extreme distance and variable terrain places Ring O’ Fire as one of the most extreme ultra marathons in the United Kingdom.
Set against the dramatic backdrop of Snowdonia, Ring O’ Fire offers adventurous runners the opportunity to challenge their limits in some of the most awe inspiring coastal scenery in Wales.
Almost all the coastline of Anglesey is a designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and runners will encounter a wide variety of terrain, including: sandy beaches, cliff top paths, sand dunes, farmers’ fields and sections of forest.
It’s not all nature, however, as runners pass Beaumaris Castle – built in 1295AD – and later, RAF Valley, the airbase where Prince William is currently stationed! The ancient burial mounds at Cable Bay are worth a few moments of time.
Ring O’ Fire should not be underestimated; the 131 mile distance and 13,695 feet of vertical ascent make this a mammoth undertaking for even the most hardy of runners.
