“Experience new adventures, leave your comfort zone, achieve impossible goals.”

Ultra X, the global events company making ultra races accessible to the masses, is hosting its first ever virtual race in response to COVID-19.

The Ultra X 14.1 will see solo runners take on the 14.1km (⅓ of a marathon) race from their doorstep at 1300 GMT on Saturday 11th April, 2020.

Over 300 people have signed up from all over the world to take part. All runners need is a GPS watch or Strava to record their time.

The event is free and a limited edition Ultra X 14.1 commemorative medal is available to purchase upon registration. Results will be announced on Monday 13th April.

In response to the pandemic, Ultra X has launched a new registration policy for their upcoming races; Azores 125 (5th-6th September, 2020), Jordan (3rd-10th October, 2020), and Mexico (7th – 14th November, 2020).

New entrants will be offered a full refund if the race gets cancelled or postponed due to the Coronavirus. If travel complications make it impossible to get to the start line, runners can request a refund right up until one week before the race start date.

Ultra X will refund entry fees in full, even if the race goes ahead. This new policy will remain in place and apply to anyone who registers until 18th September 2020.
