Beautiful but Brutal – Race Organiser 3WordRuns invites you to The Longbridge 100 Backyard Ultra which has been designed to incorporate the local history of the ‘yard’ whilst using re-developed farm buildings to create a bespoke backyard event. Longbridge is the ancient name given to the area by William the Conqueror when the land was sectioned off into 100’s. The current name for the area is Litlington. The race will take place on private hilly farmland tracks.
With its focus on the environment and sustainability, the Longbridge 100 has a mission of creating a ‘greener’ backyard. There will be a shuttle bus from the local train station for those runners and crew that want to catch the train and reduce their carbon travel emissions.
The race will be run as a typical Backyard Ultra, however there will be a bespoke gift for runners who complete 24 ‘yards’ thus in keeping with the history of the Longbridge 100. The winner will be the last man or woman standing who has completed 1 more yard than any other runner. *Backyard Ultra terms and conditions apply.
The race is limited to 100 runners (Longbridge 100) who will ALL be based within one of the converted barns at the start/finish line. No need for tents or cars however there is parking available for those runners that want to use their car or camper as a base.
The yard is 623 feet of elevation so will be a real test of stamina. Those completing the 100 will have scaled just under 15,000 feet of ancient Sussex hills.
Runners and crew will have access to food and drink from Cadence Cafe, toilets (within 50ft of the start), solar panel phone charging, and a covered rest area.
