What is The Green Man Ultra?
The Green Man Ultra is a 30 or 45 mile race around the city of Bristol, following the distributed woodland of the Community Forest Path. The event is run by Ultra Running Limited and consists of four well-stocked checkpoints, chip timing, online tracking, and pacers running at 9, 10, 11 and 12 hour times.
Running in spring, the race is often muddy, providing challenging conditions, but the stunning backdrop of the city and countryside surrounding it more than makes up for it.
If you fancy taking on the course during drier weather then The Midnight Express runs the same route in August, in reverse to the spring route - but starting at midnight and running around the city as it sleeps. This is not an event for those scared of the dark!
