This epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days (Start 1300hrs 29th – 31st August 2014) and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path around the island. The extreme distance and variable terrain places Ring O’ Fire as one of the mist extreme ultra marathons in the United Kingdom. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Snowdonia Mountain Range, Ring O’ Fire offers adventurous runners the opportunity to challenge their limits in some of the most awe inspiring coastal scenery in Wales. Runners may see porpoises, dolphins and seals swimming around the coastal waters. While rare choughs and elegant peregrine falcons fly about the skies above the Ring O’Fire start and finish line, the enigmatic puffin along with razor bills, guillemots, gannets and of course the popular common tern can be spotted around the coast. Almost all of the coastline of Anglesey is a designated “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and runners will encounter a wide variety of terrain, including; estuaries, sandy beaches, cliff top paths, sand dunes, farmer’s fields and sections of forest. It’s not all nature, however,as runners pass the busy ferry port of Holyhead; Beaumaris Castle built in 1295 AD; the grand Menai and Britannia Bridges spanning the turbulent Straits; the ancient burial mounds at Cable Bay are worth a few moments of time; and later RAF Valley, the airbase where all RAF and RN jet fighter pilots advance their training! Ring O’Fire should not be underestimated; the 135 mile distance and 13,695 feet of vertical ascent make this a mammoth undertaking for even the most hardy of runners.
