This February Ultra X are doing something unusual and hosting an event in the UK!

For those who are not yet ready to commit five days holiday for an Ultra X event just yet why not join us for a day in Guildford, only a half hour train from London, where we will talk all things Ultra.

For our Sri Lanka signups this is an opportunity to meet some of your fellow competitors, get some useful information for the April and try on some kit.

For anyone else this is an opportunity to find out some more about the world of Ultra X without having to sign down to run/walk 250 kilometres.

Starting at 11 am we will hold talks on how to succeed in a multi-day race, and introduce a little bit of exclusive info on the Sri Lanka race!

We have teamed up with Expedition Foods who are going to be providing some nutritious lunches for you to try, as well as purchase at a special price.

After this we have Likeys on site, our UK equipment supplier, who will be offering kit demonstrations and opportunities to test limited edition gear. You will also have access to a one-off weekend discount.

Just One Body, our amazing osteopaths who are on hand during all Ultra X events, will also be talking about the essential exercises you should be focusing on as runners, how to recover post exercise and how to make your bodies work as efficiently as possible.

We will be all finished up with the talks at 4 pm meaning that you can all head back to London should you wish. Alternatively, there will be an option for some head torch running and an opportunity to test poles whilst jogging along the beautiful North Downs Way Trail before returning to dinner.

This day would be great for those preparing for any trail or mountain ultra, but also for those who are curious about ultra running and Ultra X.

We only have 40 places available and it will be first come first served so do not miss the opportunity to get involved. Register now!
