100 kilo­metres. 8 days. Join us this year for more miles and memor­ies in our sea­son­al chal­lenge! You will all remem­ber last years epic Christ­mas chal­lenge, the Ultra X #Holiday100! Well we are back for 2019, even big­ger and bet­ter! With even more prizes for you, our amaz­ing com­munity!

For the 8 days between Christ­mas Eve (24th) and New Year (mid­night on the 31st), Ultra X are attempt­ing the #Holiday100.

What this means

We chal­lenge you to run or walk 100km before 2019 begins. That’s 12.5km a day if you spread it out but you can increase the dis­tance over a short­er num­ber of days too. Whatever suits you. 

All you have to do is tag @ultraxco and #Holiday100 in your social media posts for us to see. Those who like to run with their GPS can sign up for the chal­lenge and log their efforts on the Ultra X RC 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 that dress up fest­ively! 

This year we’ve teamed up with a load of brands who are going to be giv­ing away prizes each day to some lucky run­ners.

What’s in it for you?

As well as start­ing the New Year, quite lit­er­ally at a run, all those that com­plete the #Holiday100 will get an Ultra X Buff sent to them in the New Year.

The fast­est male and female to run the 100 km and post it on Strava tag­ging Ultra X will receive a FREE PLACE to Ultra X Sri Lanka this March 21–29 (Note — The “fast­est” means the first per­son to fin­ish 100km from 00:00 on the 24th Decem­ber. In 2018 the win­ner was fin­ished by 0845 on Christ­mas Eve!)

Any­one par­ti­cip­at­ing and run­ning even one mile will have the oppor­tun­ity to win a free spot to Ultra X 125 Azores which will be picked at ran­dom when the chal­lenge is com­plete, along with a bundle of good­ies from our part­ners below.

Each day we will also pick our favour­ite post to receive a prize from one of the fol­low­ing awe­some brands:


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 pur­pose of the #Holiday100 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. #Holiday100
