Check-in! [New] : We will be asking all registered participants to check in online approximately two weeks from the event. The Check-in process will result in a simpler event experience for you by removing the usual on-the-day administration. Within the Check-in process we will ask you to: 1) Confirm your preferred postal address to enable your participant number and electronic timing tag to be posted out, 2) Watch the mandatory event safety video.


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 : It's going to be a long day on the trails. Catch your breath, grab a pint from The Lands End Hotel and park up on the wall overlooking the finish. It's a great afternoon / evening with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere clapping in the finishers. Food as well as drinks served all day.

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. You will have one week from the date the event is postponed to make your choice:
    1. Accepting the new event date (this is the default option if you make no choice).
    2. Transferring to one of our other event locations for any date in the future.
    3. A refund (less a booking & card processing fee which will never be more than £10).
  3. If your plans change or you simply change your mind:
    1. You can receive a full refund (no fees or charges) should you change your mind within 30 days of booking (*1). No questions asked. To do so; log onto your account > Orders > Select the desired order number > Cancel > Confirm. It’s as simple as that. (*1 for bookings made more than 3 months prior to the event).
    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.
  4. A change in the tier system prohibiting travel or participation: If you can't attend due to a last-minute local lockdown where you live then you can opt to move your event entry to another event at a later date. If this is after the online change window closes (30 days prior to the event, point 3.b above) then this request must be instructed via email (see Contact page) with proof of address provided (a redacted cover page of a utility or council tax bill or similar):
    1. No later than 48 hrs before the event date and,
    2. No later than 7 days after a planned local lockdown has been announced (failure to do this limits our ability to offer your entry space to someone on our waitlist who is not in a restricted area).

Never be within 2 meters of anyone else

  1. No event staff will come within 2 meters of any participants:
    1. RFID electronic timing and barcode scanning 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 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. No need to queue in person in a marquee.
  3. Watch the event Welcome and Safety Video online before the event on 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.

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