Intro­du­cing the #hilladay100
Y’all remem­ber our winter Holiday100 right? Well, in homage to the beast that is Ultra X Mex­ico, start­ing this Novem­ber 2nd, we are launch­ing the HILLADAY100! The chal­lenge lasts for the 100 (ish) hours from 6pm on Wed­nes­day the 10th July to 6pm on Sunday the 14th July.  What is the chal­lenge!? Ultra X Mex­ico starts at the magic town of Creel situ­ated 2345 metres above sea level. So, we are chal­len­ging YOU to climb there. That’s 7,693 feet/2345 metres in 100 hours. That’s roughly 586 metres per day if you spread it out but you can increase it over a short­er num­ber of days too. Whatever suits you.  Now we know that’s a lot so we are going to be reward­ing every­one for just tak­ing part. Wheth­er you’re climb­ing Arthur’s Seat in Scot­land, Mount Kili­man­jaro in Tan­zania or simply your loc­al view­point, if you climb up it enough to reach the total, and tag us @ultraxco and we’ll send you a free Ultra X buff.  Those who like to run with their GPS can sign up for the chal­lenge and log their efforts on the Ultra XRC Strava page. We will share the best posts on our social media each day of the chal­lenge. Top points for those of you get­ting friends to join and/or find us a ser­i­ous view­point. What’s in it for you? As well as work­ing on that sum­mer bod, you’ve got an excuse to for­get about pace, miles and just go out and find some hills for once. It’s an oppor­tun­ity to tri­al a new route and just think of the views your going to get when you get up there!
  • All those that join in will get an Ultra X Buff sent to them!
  • The per­son who gets the most vert with­in the time frame and post it on Strava tag­ging Ultra X will receive a FREE PLACE TO Ultra X Mex­ico this Novem­ber 2–10.
  • Every­one who man­ages to com­plete the chal­lenge and lets us know by tag­ging us and join­ing our Strava group will get a FREE tick­et to the Ultra X Sum­mit plus be entered into a bal­lot for a com­pletely free Ultra X Mex­ico place! Win­ner to be announced mid­day on the 17th!
Why?  At Ultra X, multi-day racing and train­ing is in our DNA Ultra X aim to be the biggest multistage series in the world. Our jour­ney to the fin­ish line may be an indi­vidu­al one, but we’re a com­munity that sup­ports and encour­ages one anoth­er to achieve the impossible. We love get­ting out there day in day out and so do our com­munity. The #hilladay100 is to unite all who are will­ing to get act­ive and push their bound­ar­ies. Ultra X want to encour­age every­one to get involved We are the first timers, the seasoned endur­ance ath­letes and the elite ultra run­ners. Ultra X was cre­ated to encour­age every­one to take on chal­lenges which push them. If you are look­ing to take up run­ning or just for a reas­on to get mov­ing, here’s your chance. Get out there and give it a crack, regard­less of your abil­ity. #hilladay100
