2021 will be the fifth running of the summer Ultra:5K, a unique race format which introduces the element of strategy into your running. It takes place on Sunday 18th July 2021 at Box End Park in Bedfordshire.

INDIVIDUAL

There are two distance options for Ultra:5K individual entries: a 5x5K (five laps of 5K, on the hour, every hour, for 5 hours), and a 3x5K (three laps of 5K, on the hour every hour, for 3 hours). The 5K route will be officially measured and certified. The event winners will be decided based on the fastest accumulative time over the five or three races.

TEAM

There are two distance options for Ultra:5K team entries: a 5x5K (a team of five, each member running five laps of 5K, on the hour every hour, for 5 hours), and a 3x5K (a team of five, each member running three laps of 5K, on the hour every hour, for 3 hours). The 5K route will be officially measured and certified. The event winners will be decided based on the fastest accumulative team time over the five or three races.

Participants 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.

Between the races there is a holding area with food and drink available as well as the option of having soft tissue work, stretching, massage, etc.

Runners must be 17 or older on the day of the event.
