The Ultra 5K is a new and unique race format which introduces the element of strategy into your running. It takes place on Sunday 8th July 2018 at Box End Park in Bedfordshire.
There are two distance options: a 5* 5K and a 3* 5K, both can be entered as an individual or as a team of either five or three. The 5K route will be officially measured and certified.
Individuals and teams start together and have one hour to complete the 5K and recover before the next mass start. If you run a 20 minute 5k, then you have 40 minutes recovery before the next 5k to recover. Equally if you take 40 minutes to run 5k, you have 20 minute recovery time before the next race start. For full details, see our website.
The event winners will be decided based on the fastest average time over the five or three races.
Between the races there will be a holding area with food and drink available as well as the option of having soft tissue work, stretching, massage, etc.
Individual runners must be 17 or older on the day of the event. A relay team may have a runner that is 11 or older, but they must only run one leg.
