At approximately 48 miles (77Km) and 1000 metres of ascent this race will circle around the island following the stunning granite cliffs of the North Coast to the golden sands of St. Ouen's Bay and the South Coast.
Is 48 miles too far?
Why not try
Can you run 48 miles in under 6 hours?
Dan Doherty ran Round The Rock in 6hours 15 minutes and matched that time in 2012 he still aims to run under 6 hours .
In his debut year at international running, Dan amazingly finished in the top 20 in the world at both 100km and trail running. Dan won multiple trail races in the UK in 2011 and finished 17th at the Trail World Championships in Connemara on 9th July 2011. In doing so, he led the Irish team to 7th position. Dan subsequently finished 14th at the 2011 World 100km Championships in the Netherlands on 10th September 2011. He ran a PB of 7:08:07 hrs in the process and led the Irish team to 5th position in Europe and 7th in the world. Dan made his debut for Ireland at the 2011 Anglo Celtic Plate 100km in March 2011 and ran an excellent time of 7:19:29
Dan describes Round The Rock,
"This is definitely one for the beginner to ultra running and certainly for someone who wants to make the step up to the 50m mark. But it’s also one for the more experienced runner who may want to try and break the 6 hour mark which I know can be achieved. That’s why I’ll be back next year to hit the sub 6 hour :O). See you there."
Do you think that you can beat 6 hours?
