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 a variety of off-road tracks through Cranborne Chase woods; see this review to get a feel for what it’s like to complete. The route is made up of 9 laps, the first lap is 4 miles and then 8 laps of 5.75 mile loops to complete your 50 miles. You will be able to leave fuel/bags etc in the gazebos near to the start/finish line so you have everything you need close at hand.

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.
