How Far Will You Go? UK's Biggest 24hr Trail Race

ULTRA NORTH is set to return to the North East on Saturday 5 June 2021. After a hugely successful inaugural event in 2020 entries are open again. Last years event was an on, off, on affair!

The 2021 event will retain all of the best bits which proved a big hit with participants, but with an improved shorter route and a new start & finish. 

Starting and finishing in Derwenthaugh Park, just a few minutes from Newcastle in Gateshead, ULTRA NORTH celebrates the industrial history of the North East, offering a unique opportunity to explore the blend of urban, parkland, disused railway lines and woodland trails that the area has to offer.

Participants are challenged to complete the shorter 25k distance or the 55k ultra distance event.  With two distances and generous cut off times, the event is accessible to all, whether seasoned ultra-runners, walkers seeking a challenge, or first timers looking to push their limits.

NORTH 25 is designed to be a perfect challenge for half marathon runners looking to embark on a new off-road challenge.  Starting in Derwenthaugh Park, participants will follow the Derwent River until they reach the famous River Tyne, before crossing the iconic 9 arches viaduct and a final stretch on the Derwent Walk before finishing in Derwenthaugh Park.

ULTRA NORTH 55 will take competitors on a tour of the region, passing iconic landmarks such as the Tyne Bridge, Millennium Bridge and 9 arches viaduct, and following iconic footpaths including Hadrian’s Way, Wylam’s Wagon Way & Derwent Walk.

Entries are now open and for a limited time only are available at a special Launch price.  Discover what you are made of in 2021, visit the website HERE.
