Ring O' Fire is a coastal ultra marathon which takes runners on an extraordinary 135 mile journey around the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales.
The epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path.
Almost the entire coastline of Anglesey has been designated an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". Set against the dramatic backdrop of
Snowdonia mountain range, runners will challenge themselves in some of the most awe inspiring coastal scenery in the British Isles.
Beauty aside, the extreme distance and variable terrain has sealed the race's reputation as one of the most challenging ultra marathons in
the British Isles.
Since 2017, we have been offering runners the chance to run Day 1 of the Ring O' Fire as a separate race.
If you prefer a single stage race over a shorter distance this may be the race for you. This 35.7 mile race is a very challenging
ultra marathon in its own right. We call it the Firelighter!
