It feels like the dark clouds of 2020 are slowly starting to lift. With that in mind, we’ve decided now is the right time to launch a brand new event. Tunnel Vision fans already know the delights of running on the traffic-free Brampton Valley Way. How many of you, have ever run the whole length (14 miles or 22.5km) and back? It’s a super flat route with a constantly changing feel as the route cuts through the heart of rural Northamptonshire. The surface is suitable for road or trail shoes as it is hard packed track with only the occasional puddle (and a baby ford).

At 28 miles or 45km, the distance is a little over a marathon thus officially making it an ultra run. The terrain and distance however, make it a good stepping stone for people considering looking at longer distances in the future.

You have the choice from which end you wish to start. There will be 100 places available from each end. This decision will nail your colours to the mast as representing either Market Harborough/Leicestershire or Northampton/shire.
