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.
