Held under UK: Athletics rules and with the kind permission of British Waterways, this non-stop race is from Gas Street Basin, Birmingham, along the way-marked Grand Union Canal Towpath to Little Venice, London. The race covers the 145-mile trail from the Britain’s second largest city, Birmingham, to London on the Grand Union Canal towpath with a 45-hour cut-off. This route is an amalgamation of several canal systems, created in its current form in 1929 to better compete for business transportation cargo with the road system.
