welcome to the ultra x summit
The Ultra X Summit is the highlight and biggest national event in our calendar. The event spans just 24 hours and in 2019 is to be based at Herriard Park, Hampshire, just a 40 minute train journey from London, on the 27th and 28th July.
Tickets are on sale. Just click here
Everything we do is about experience and accessibility which is why we’ve designed the Summit to be just this. As easy as possible to get to and as affordable as we can make it. Tickets cost just £45.
How it works:
Grab your running buddies and head down on Saturday morning with your tent and sleeping bag (it will be the warmest time of year) to hit the trails, hear from legendary speakers, inside and outside the industry, and enjoy one hell of a BBQ with Ultra X’s very own brew.
The summit is designed to celebrate the achievements of our community throughout 2019 as well as offering a chance to launch our upcoming race seasons.
The weekend is an opportunity to spend time with like-minded people, and we’re not just runners; we’re brand builders, adventurers, professionals and much more. But most of all we are doers and we love to travel. Our speaker line-up will reflect this.
With bespoke summit stash and special announcements, this is the pinnacle of the club’s year.
Also, we love to shake it up and if it hasn’t been done before we’ll usually give it a whirl.
As such, prepare yourself for a serious raffle and the chance to win free entry into Ultra X races for life. HA! And there’s more, that person will be able to take 2 friends at half price to every and any race they wish. Oh, and if you can win our beer mile competition you could very well find yourself leaving with £2,000 cold hard cash.
Kieran Lowe our Osteopath and Sports Rehabilitator from Just one body will be on hand to help with his portable couch to treat, advise and discuss any issues your struggling with throughout the weekend.
