The Omen 66.6 Ultra & 6.66
06 Jun 2020 - 18 Jul 2020
Welcome to The Omen 66.6 Ultra, The Omen 6.66 aka "Baby Damien" and, new for 2020, The Omen 666 juniors race.
Covid19 update - There will inevitably be changes to the event in order to ensure the safety of runners, crew and the public as much as possible. Currently we expect to have to make changes to our usual registration, aid stations and return transport provision. Runners may be asked to provide personal nutrition for crew to take to checkpoints which may be subject to change without notice. Anyone with symptoms before the event will be able to defer their place or receive a refund. We thank our runners in advance for their cooperation with any safety measures which we put in place for their and our crews safety.
The full course takes in a good chunk of the North Downs Way with views of Guildford Cathedral as featured in The Omen film. At approximately 66.6 miles, point to point, this is a great distance for those preparing for a century or a tough challenge for less experienced ultra runners (and not to be undererstimated). The 6.66 shares the same start point near Guildford Cathedral and finishes at the Silent Pool. Return transport for both distances is included if booked when you sign up. The Omen 666 juniors race is an approximately 1 mile fun run for juniors 5yrs and over, again with an early start near Guildford Cathedral.
It is possible to enter the 66.6 Ultra in a relay team. The baton (tracker) can only be handed over at one of the 8 checkpoints. Entered in a small team this still be a challenge, a larger team will make it much more manageable. All runners will receive a t-shirt and a medal, there is no extra cost for relay entry but teams are responsible for their own transport arrangements.
Important note: the majority of the self navigated course follows the North Downs Way (signed but not fool proof), is off road, some road sections and there are multiple road crossings. Care must be taken at all times, you are responsible for your own safety and for following the course as shown online. Please ensure your race number is on your front and that you have been checked in at each aid station. There will be cut-offs for your safety. All solo ultra runners must have completed a foot race of at least 26.2 miles before taking part in The Omen 66.6 Ultra within three years of the event, note this isn't required before entering.
Results will be available online as soon as possible after the event. We will always aim to have provisional results published within 24 hours.
