Introducing the next in our 'UNLIMITED' class of VULTRA - it's our Lands End to John O'Groats - 813 mile LEJOG.
The LEJOG VULTRA is the next level in our popular VULTRA series and was always going to be something a bit special as we're based in the UK and know much of the run route. This is an ideal long term running challenge as our LEJOG VULTRA gives you an almost unlimited amount of time to complete it. Starting from February 1st 2021 you have as long as you like (up to 5 years) to cover the mileage and it really does have something for everyone; from seasoned ultra runners to those who are new to running and want to try something totally epic. You can complete this VULTRA on your own terms; take a few months, take a year, take 5 years; do as much or as little mileage as and when you like and keep chipping away until you reach the finish line at the famous signpost at John O'Groats. Oh and of course there will be the epic bling - obviously. This medal is awesome!
The route from Lands End to John O'Groats is generally regarded to fall somewhere between 812.77 miles and 875 miles depending on your mode of transport - car, bike or legs! Our challenge is a virtual running challenge so we've carefully mapped out the shortest known running route to mirror the route usually used for the JOGLE / LEJOG record attempts or a close to it as possible. Our LEJOG VULTRA is 813 miles long. Strictly speaking no two LEJOG run routes are ever exactly the same.
The exciting bit :
You'll get a bespoke, sequential BIB when you sign up. There will be a route map and a central results and progress landing page on the Phoenix Running VULTRA tab on the website. Each competitor will have their own virtual location pin (complete with their name and BIB number for tracking your virtual progress). You can even add your profile picture in your Phoenix World settings. Once you start your virtual run you'll submit your mileage as you go which, once approved, will automatically move you along the map. The route is 813 miles along the shortest known LEJOG route. Once you've submitted enough mileage to get to the finish line at John O'Groats then you are an official finisher of the LEJOG VULTRA - Unlimited! Your total miles and total time will be added to the finisher results, you'll show as 'COMPLETE' and be able to download your finishers' certificate and we'll send you your epic bling!
This is a challenge for literally anyone of any running ability. If you're new to running, fancy having a go at something epic, or fancy your first foray into multi-day endurance challenges, want to practice running consistent distances over consecutive days, or just want to see how many miles you can run over a few months or a year or two or three or five then this is for you.
We also have a JOGLE VULTRA, so basically this route in reverse, so you could always do an 'out and back'.
This is an ideal annual challenge if you fancy something BIG with a BIG medal.
