Runners, joggers and walkers alike can now sign up to take part in the Threshold Trail Series, a series of award-winning ultra-marathons that give participants the opportunity to explore and discover some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside.
The Threshold Trail Series is made up of three of the best loved endurance trail events in the UK, with each event offering a unique challenge using a variety of terrains, gradients, elevations, distances and awe-inspiring landscapes.
Participants can opt to take on each ultra over one or two days, spending the night at the renowned basecamps where tales of the day are shared over delicious hot food and cold drinks. Base campers can also rest and recuperate with massages, yoga, hot showers and comfortable tents.
The popularity of the Threshold Trail Series continues to grow year on year and since 2017, the series has seen a 25% increase in the number of people signing up to its events:
Race to the King

Starting in picturesque Arundel and finishing at the iconic Winchester Cathedral, Race to the King is a fantastic all-rounder, featuring a variety of terrain and landscape along its 86.2km route.
Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones
Saturday 4th- Sunday 5th July
Voted ‘Best Endurance Event’ at the prestigious 2018 and 2019 annual Running Awards, Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones takes participants along the oldest path in Britain ‘The Ridgeway’.

Race to the Tower

For the lover of hills, Race to the Tower takes participants along the stunning climbs of the Cotswolds Way, on an 84.3km route with spectacular views that make the challenging inclines and descents to the Broadway Tower worthwhile!
Threshold Sports CEO Nick Tuppen: “We are proud to be able to bring these incredible events to so many people and to have made trail events accessible to all by providing unrivalled support from the day you sign up to the moment you cross the finish line.
“Over the years we have fostered a supportive community of likeminded people who not only inspire each other but also, inspire us. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to witness people push their boundaries, test their limits and gain new perspectives by accomplishing something extraordinary.”
Those looking to sign up can do so via a range of packages with entries starting from just £39 for a charity place. After 31st August super early bird prices will end and the cost of each package will increase.
