The Ultra Loop is an inclusive and flexible 8-hour running event with no limit on how far you can run. Within the 8 hours, you are encouraged to run as far as you can.

The mixed-terrain course combines roads and trails around a 5km loop and no matter how many loops you run, you receive a finishing time and medal.

The event takes place at the very popular Heaton Park in Manchester, UK. The route allows you to experience Heaton Park in all its expanse and beauty as you run by Boating Lake and Heaton Hall and explore the trails and streams of the woodland.

Course Details

The route is 5 kilometres across a range of terrain including woodland trail and park road with approx. 75m of elevation. With there being some uphill trail sections of the route but the route being mostly asphalt path, we would recommend wearing road shoes with good grip, or light trail shoes that are also fit for road. The route is not on a closed course, so please consider that there may be walkers or dog walkers in the area.

how it works

All runners will start at 09.00. The starting/finishing point will be the singular aid station (every 5K) which will have water and fuel. The cut off point for finishing is 17.00.

There will be one starting line, which will also be a crossing line that provides loop split times. When you're ready to finish the number of loops you want to run, you cross a separate finishing line.

Participants will be able to see their finishing time and distance from the moment they step over the finish line via our website. Alternatively, printed finishing tickets will be available at the event on request

There will be one winner of the overall 50K race, but there will also be 'fastest finishing times' for each number of loops which will be released on our website after the event finishes.

facilities

Surrounding the start/finish line will be the event village. There will be a bag drop, toilets, and some other stalls from our event partners for you to check out.

The start/finish line will also act as the singular aid station and spectator area. This is where spectators can gather and participant's crew can set up individual aid stations if preferred. Our aid station will provide water, fruit, vegan snacks, a limited number of energy bars from our event sponsor VOOM and hydration products from our partner LMNT. When you are finished you are welcome to visit the aid station again for fruit and snacks, as well as specialised bottled water provided by our event partner Actiph.

There will also be a hot drinks stall selling coffee, tea and hot chocolate as well as cakes and pastries for both participants and spectators.

If you would like to bring your own food and drink and you won't have someone with you to look after it, there will be an area where you can store your fuel but please make sure it is very clearly labelled.

With sustainability in mind, we are operating on a bring your own bottle basis. We will have plenty of water for you to fill up your bottles, but we will not be providing cups at the aid station.

choosing your distance

Upon entry you will be asked to choose a distance, please be aware this is just a guide for us, and your distance choice on entry does not limit your distance choice on the day.
