The Channel Island's original Ultra Marathon will be celebrating its 5th Anniversary on 1st August 2015.
All previous year's winners are invited to return and race in a head - to -head race of champions!
This ultra marathon will take place at 6am on 1st August 2015 around the Island of Jersey, Channel Islands, UK.
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.
Are you interested in winning £2000 and can run 48 miles in under 6 hours?
Dan Doherty ran Round The Rock in 6hours 15 minutes and matched that time in 2012.
In 2011 Dan described 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 50 mile 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."
In 2012 Dan matched his previous years blistering run in blistering heat... so the 6 hour target remains. Bruno Francisco in 2014 came tantalisingly close but the Rock could not be defeated and he managed an incredible 6 hours 23 minutes.
Do you think that you can beat 6 hours? We will be offering £2000 for the fastest time below 6 hours... can you claim it?
( A GPS tracking record will need to be submitted as means of validation. This will be checked by race organisers and will need to be verified prior to confirmation of award. Final decision rests with organising committee.)
