Challenge information

Join #TeamStroke in one of the toughest challenges yet!

Ring O' Fire is a coastal ultra-marathon that takes runners on an extraordinary 135-mile journey around the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. The epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Snowdonia mountain range, runners will challenge themselves in some of the most awe-inspiring coastal scenery in the British Isles. Beauty aside, the extreme distance and variable terrain has sealed the race's reputation as one of the most challenging ultra-marathons in the British Isles.

There is also the offer to run Day One of the Ring O’ Fire as a separate race - the Firelighter. If you prefer a single-stage race over a shorter distance, this may be the race for you. This 35.7-mile race is still a very challenging ultra-marathon in its own right.
