The Omen 66.6 Ultra & 6.66
03 Jun 17
Welcome to The Omen 6.66 and 66.6 Ultra, the first of the horrific ultra running series.
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 when booked when you sign up.
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.
Please check the Race Pack for all essential race details and you can find the Course complete with 8 checkpoint locations (please note the course profile is misleading due to the fact it was covered in out-of-order sections - we will be providing a new GPS course).
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.
