Multiple award winning UK running magazine highlights the WOW! factor of our race.
“Ultramarathons are often marketed with aggressive or unfriendly words; brutal, testing, ultimate challenge, whereas the Merrell Whale of Trail is so damn enjoyable as to make one feel guilty for claiming any hardship. It is an ultra and it is a tough, nay, incredibly tough route to do in a day, but every single finisher does so grinning. Shattered and spent, yet absolutely aware of the privilege they have been granted to be able to run here.”
