Runningworks Lark Hill Party Ultra


Welcome to the home of the Runningworks Lark Hill Party Ultra

Runningworks will now be hosting the Lark Hill Ultra in 2025. We didn’t want to see this iconic event disappear from the running calendar, so Dave decided to pass on the baton to us, I personally have always loved this event and want to keep this event alive. We hope you will get behind it too! In order to keep this event alive, we are asking for your support.

We really want to make Lark Hill as awesome and exciting as possible. We will have an MC, DJ, food & coffee vans in order to create a big party atmosphere on a very spectator friendly course. This will ensure all the action can be followed until midnight. So, get those party vibes on and get your glow stick out for the night.

Please support this event by registering.
