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 Omen 6.66 is a little over 10k and starts with the Ultra.  It is possible to enter the 66.6 Ultra in a relay team of 2 or 3 runners.  This will still be a challenge and each team mate 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 fo 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 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.

A final mail we be sent out during race week, please check this for any changes or extra info.  The mandatory kit list for Ultra runners is detailed below.    Registration and kit check will be at the bottom of the Guildford Cathedral drive, Stag Hill, Guildford, Surrey GU2 7UP from 06.15 - 06.45, a briefing will take place at 6.55 and we will start at 7am.  
 
Kit list (ultra solo and ultra relay only) -
Tracker provided by Organisers.  This must be attached to your running pack with clear view of the sky (generally taped to the shoulder strap).  If tracker is lost or damaged you will be required to pay for it's replacement.  Relay teams must transfer the tracker to the next runner, we suggest using the same pack is easiest.  
Fully Charged Mobile Phone. This must have Race Director number stored, be set to loud, data and GPS should be turned off to extend battery life and waterproofed. If you plan to use you phone to aid navigation, take selfies or in any other way other than for safety/ contact with the race organisers, you must carry means of charging on the move to ensure sufficient battery life).  If you are using a number different to that you signed up with you must make this known at registration. If you are running late for a CP, require first aid or are withdrawing you must contact the RD. In the event of serious illness/ injury the emergency services should be contacted before the RD.
Water Bottles/Bladder.
