Prince William is getting back to work!

Just over a month after welcoming his royal baby boy Prince George, the 31-year-old will be starting the annual Ring O' Fire marathon that stretches a whopping 135 miles around the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales! Clarence House tweeted earlier today, "Just announced, on Friday 30th August The Duke of Cambridge will start the Ring O' Fire Coastal Ultra Marathon in Anglesey #sport."

According to the Ring O' Fire website, the marathon is an "epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path around the island. The extreme distance and variable terrain places Ring O' Fire as one of the most extreme ultra marathons in the United Kingdom."

Prince William's marathon announcement comes as Kate Middleton recently made her first post-baby outing on the island of Anglesey.

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted looking svelte while going for a shopping trip. Guess she's already lost all that baby weight!

Will and Kate have called Anglesey home since their wedding back in April 2011.
