The Ox 50-mile race is a lapped race with a generous cut-off to help you hit that 50-mile milestone. The route is made up of 8 laps – the first lap is a shorter 4.2 miles (6.8K), then all the other laps will be the same 6.6-mile (10.5K) loop used in the Ox Frolic to make 50 miles. The route is made up of a variety of off-road tracks through Cranborne Chase woods.

There is a cut-off for this 50-mile event. You must start your final lap within 12 hours. As it’s a tough challenge, we don’t want anyone dropping out and walking away empty handed. If you’re not out on your last lap by 19.59.59pm, you will be given an Ox Frolic time, distance and goody bag, with the relevant medal although you will not be eligible for a 12-hour prize.
