Now established as the UK openers in the Ultra race calendar. The Country to Capital is also one of the premier single day Ultra events. The route takes in some pretty stunning countryside which, even in the depths of winter is going to look good. We carry this countryside well inside the M25 where we pick up the Grand Union Canal tow path for the final run into London where we will finish at Little Venice.
