This week­end it’s the Nation­al Run­ning Show at Birmingham’s NEC and we’ll be there in force. Expect epic com­pet­i­tions, meet and greet oppor­tun­it­ies with your favour­ite ath­letes, a chance to travel to 4,000m alti­tude, lots of excit­ing giveaways and heaps of stash. So make sure you vis­it Stand C58. We’ve got one rule and one rule only — no-one leaves the Ultra X stand empty handed!  

Itin­er­ary

Sat­urday 25th Janu­ary

09:00 Spin The Wheel!
Head over to Stand C58 and spin the Ultra X Wheel of For­tune! We’ve got a great range of prizes for you to WIN, includ­ing dis­coun­ted race entry, a free desert train­ing camp in Dubai and, of course, some Ultra X stash!

11:00 Chat (+ Ins­tagram Live) with Mark Peart
Come and join us for a chat with ex RAF Fire­fight­er and SAS Who Dares Wins recruit Mark Peart. He recently com­pleted TRIBE Run For Love 3, an epic 260km multi-stage ultra mara­thon in the Azores organ­ised by Ultra X. We’ll be talk­ing about his exper­i­ence in the Azores and what drives him to keep push­ing his phys­ic­al and men­tal bound­ar­ies.

13:00 Sur­prise Guest!
Join­ing us at Stand C58 will be a very spe­cial sur­prise guest. We won’t be announ­cing who before­hand, so you’ll just have to be there to find out. Hint: this per­son is a legend.

14:00–16:00 The 4,000m Step Chal­lenge
The guys from The Alti­tude Centre will be tak­ing over the Ultra X stand for the alti­tude step chal­lenge! How does it work? Simple. Put on the alti­tude mask, ascend to 4,000m elev­a­tion, and see how many steps you can do on a step­per in 2 minutes. Who­ever does the most steps gets a FREE Per­form­ance Con­sulta­tion (worth £129) at The Alti­tude Centre.
