It is looking very positive that we will be able to deliver the CQ event on the 5th September and this is our clear intention.

Please remember that the event can never be 100% guaranteed, for example, if there were to be a local lockdown in Cornwall then the event could and would not take place. We are all hoping this will not be the case. As we are still four weeks away from the event time is on our side and indeed we are keeping close watch over a number of other small events which are planned to proceed in the UK over the coming weeks.

Further details will be emailed out to registered participants on Monday the 17th August. If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime you can email or call us directly.

We hope you are keeping fit and well at this time.

The Endurancelife Classic Quarter is a relentless Ultra Marathon along the south Cornish coast in the UK from Lizard Point to Land's End.

First hosted in 2007 each year the event grows in global reputation.

The task is brutally simple: to run non-stop from the southernmost point of England (Lizard Point), to the western most tip (Lands End), along the legendary South West Coast Path. This translates to running 90 degrees of the compass, hence the name, Classic Quarter.

This Cornwall ultra marathon challenge can be undertaken as a solo, relay team of two, or relay of four. The atmosphere is of keen and friendly rivalry.

Following 44 miles of the mesmerising South West Coast Path there are innumerable steep climbs and descents. This is the ultimate trail runner's rush, with spectacular exposure and challenging terrain all just a stone's throw away from the potentially pounding Atlantic swells. There is also the unpredictable weather to contend with along the way and every runner must be well prepared, both mentally and physically.

Virtual : Don't forget to connect with us via the official Facebook Event where you can select "Going" or "Interested". Here you can network with others and join in the conversation by asking questions and advice.

In Person : We don't organise an official Afterparty at this event as it isn't needed; the finish is based at The Lands End Hotel where there is plenty of outdoor seating, good food and a bar for that well deserved drink!

Never be locked in

  1. Cancellation: You will always be given a full refund (no fees or charges) if the event has to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Your entry will never be ‘rolled over’ to a subsequent year unless you want it.
  2. Postponement: You will always be given the following three options should an event have to be postponed (date changed) due to Covid-19:
    1. Accepting the new event date + receiving a £10 goodwill voucher.
    2. Transferring to one of our other event locations for any date in the future + receiving a £10 goodwill voucher.
    3. A refund (less a booking & card processing fee which will never be more than £10)
  3. If your plans change or you change your mind:
    1. You can receive a full refund (no fees or charges) should you change your mind within 30 days of booking. No questions asked. To do so; log onto your account > Orders > Select the desired order number > Cancel > Confirm. It’s as simple as that.
    2. You can chop and change between our whole events portfolio at any time. Just make sure you do this more than 30 days before the event you are booked on to. To do so; log onto your account > Orders > Select the desired order number > Change > Select the desired (new) event.

Never be within 2 meters of anyone else

  1. No event staff will come within 2 meters of any participants:
    1. RFID electronic timing removes the need for close personal contact.
    2. Checkpoints (aid stations) operate on a self-serve basis; all items will be individually bagged / bottled with gloved staff keeping their distance but there if you need them.
  2. Receive your participant number and electronic timing chip in the post ahead of time or collect on the day, your choice.
  3. Watch the event Welcome and Safety Video online 24hrs before the event from your phone or laptop.
  4. Join in with our mass start or choose a time-trial start for yourself or your group. Either way you can enjoy watching the online leaderboard update throughout the event day to see how you fare against the competition.

Although there are a raft of other changes we have put in place we hope the examples above clearly demonstrate our priorities to you. All changes will be in place across our portfolio of events for the foreseeable future, most likely until the end of 2021.

We hope that you can now relax and take part with confidence; we are looking forward to delivering your next tough challenge!

With best wishes,

James and the Endurancelife Team.

Never, never, never give up.
