About the Ultra Challenge Series
The Ultra Challenge Series provides a choice of inspiring endurance events like no other, that you can walk, jog, or run.
Whether it’s a 25km walk, a testing 50km, or the 100km ultra marathon run or walk, there’s a distance for everyone. The all inclusive events offer great hospitality, including regular rest stops with drinks and snacks, a fully signed route, marshals, medics and hot meals designed to keep you going.
Passing by stunning scenery, meeting new friends and discovering hidden resilience & spirit, few can describe the elation at crossing the finishing line of an ultra.
