About the event

The Dig Deep weekend is brought to you by Eight Point Two. We designed and ran the very first Ultra Tour of the Peak District in 2012. The races were such a great success that we just had to continue them. After the success of 2012 and 2013 we've developed the events and have incorporated the brand new Dig Deep Suffolk event.


All of the races are predominantly trail races. There are occasional road sections on the Ultras but apart from that its traffic free all the way! The trails we are using around Suffolk are predominantly flat (ish). However, the routes are undulating and have a variety of surfaces to contend with from forest trail to stony beaches! We believe the races show the best of what Suffolk has to offer and sometimes you have to work that little bit harder to see it!


The Ultra Tour of Suffolk and the Suffolk Trail ‘Intro Ultra’ both exceed the traditional marathon distance putting them both in to the ULTRA category. The Ultra Tour of Suffolk is not designed for novice Ultra runners. However, it is a brilliant route and should be on your 'MUST DO' list of races to complete. The route is signed but some navigation may be necessary.


The Suffolk Trail ‘Intro Ultra’ follows the Ultra Tour of Suffolk along parts of its length but deviates from certain key sections. This means that the Intro Ultra is less committing in terms of distance and the ground you will cover. It's still a long way though! It’s a marathon on trails – not to be underestimated! The route is signed but some navigation may be necessary.

THE RENDLESHAM 20k TRAIL RACE (20km/12.5 miles)

This race is one of the highlights of the Dig Deep event largely due to the amazing diversity of the trails you follow. The route is fully signed.


5 ½ miles - there or thereabouts! This race isn't for your average road runners out to get a PB! There are awkward trails and possibly mud to encounter! In other words, a proper trail race! Fully signed.
