After a successful inaugural event in 2020, ULTRA NORTH returns on Saturday 5 June 2021. 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 in Derwenthaugh Park, just a few minutes from Newcastle in Gateshead
It was on then it was off and now the ULTRA NORTH, the new ultra-marathon for the North East is back! The race will take place on Saturday 3 October 2020.
Starting and finishing in Newcastle, ULTRA NORTH explores the industrial history of the area, offering a unique opportunity to explore the blend of urban, parkland, disused railway lines and woodland trails that the North East has to offer.
