80 Miles – 2 Days along the Grand Union Canal
Tring2Town is a foot race covering 80 miles along the Grand Union Canal. On Saturday the course will run from London Brentford, to Tring in Hertfordshire. Sunday will see the reverse from Tring to London Brentford. Each competitor must carry all his or her supplies and compulsory equipment for the duration of the event.
Started as a no-frills fun event in 2005, it has quickly become a regular fixture on our Ambition Events calendar.
The event has an optional format; competitors have a choice of which day and which direction to run, and for those looking for a real challenge, there is the option to run both days, both ways.
It is an ideal event to help those preparing for Marathon des Sables and RAW.
Tring2Town is part of Ambition Events’ “UK Ultra Running Series”.
