Race Description

2020 sees the second edition of this race taking in the beauty of Northamptonshire’s villages, forests, canals and country parks.

The Rose of the Shires Ultra is back!
We are excited to give you another opportunity to enjoy this race in a fantastic central location, with a single loop making for easy planning and logistics. The route takes in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside with two country parks, Salcey Forest, the Grand Union Canal and 21 pretty villages and towns following parts of the Nene Way, the Midshires Way and the Northampton Round. There are 6 checkpoints at 6 to 8 mile intervals.

Who knows what 2020 will bring in terms of the competition between local running clubs for the best check point trophy. 2019 saw Redwell Runners scoop the award (helped mainly by their pantomime horse!)
