55K ULTRA | 27.5K

Important Event Update

 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we need to cancel the Ultra North event due to take place on 25th April.

 

We know our participants will be disappointed, and we are too, we love delivering our events. But there’s no option to stage the event as planned, or later in the year.
 

We will automatically process a refund of entry fees to our runners and will be in touch with them by email.

Thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.
