The 9bar JOGLE ULTRA 2011 starts on Friday 21st April… and this year there are seven intrepid runners ready to take on the 860+ mile route from John O’Groats to Lands End. Ahead of them they have a new level of endurance to conquer… 55+ miles/day for 16 consecutive days is a huge undertaking for any Ultra Runner and a massive personal challenge. The competitors will be living on a luxury rock-and-roll sleeper coach with its own on-board chef, and they will enjoy 16 days out on the open roads of Scotland, England and Wales. The route has a million highlights and countless places of beauty and interest and along the way. Reaching England at halfway and the turning for home as you cross the Severn Bridge back into England really puts the scale of the UK into perspective. Reaching Lands End is simply unforgettable, and for the winner will be all the sweeter for they will be driving home in a BRAND NEW 1.2 Chevrolet Spark.
