Saturday 12th Oct 2019, 8pm Start

Mickleham Village Hall, 20 Dell Close, Mickleham, Dorking, Surrey RH5 6EE.

The Raven Marathon & Ultra are new events taking place over the beautiful Surrey Hills.

Taking place at night, The Raven Marathon & 35 mile Ultra are test runs for a new four race series starting in 2020. The Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter Ravens will test your ability in all four of the seasons.

The races start at Mickleham Village Hall (Race HQ) incorporating three loops of 8.75miles for the Marathon & four loops of 8.75miles for the 35mile Ultra. The route will be fully marked on the night with signs & tape.

This will be an exceptionally testing course, with over 1,800ft of ascent per lap & just one checkpoint per lap the 8.75mile mark (Village Hall).


The Village Hall will be well stocked with the ‘usual’ ultramarathon nutrition.
