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.

The Lands End Hotel is close-by the finish and serves hot food and drinks throughout the day.

Both of which are a huge reward after crossing the finish line!
