Organiser's Description

Ultra X England is an event that takes place in the Peak District National Park in September each year. It offers two races: Ultra X 110 England and Ultra X 50 England. The 110 event is a two-stage race taking place on Saturday and Sunday, whilst the 50 event is a single-stage race taking place on the Sunday, following the same route but starting 2 hours later.

Inhabited from the Mesolithic era, the Peak District has a rich history of agriculture, mining and quarrying, and is now famous for its vast natural landscapes, spa towns, caves and network of footpaths and cycling trails. With a huge variety of remote terrain, challenging climbs, and stunning upland scenery on offer, the Peak District is one of the best trail running locations in the country.

Ultra X England’s races are both UTMB® Index Races, in the 100k and 50k categories respectively. Both races are held under full UK Athletics permit granted through the TRA (permit numbers 5276 and 5278).

Itinerary

Morning
We advise all participants to travel by rail where possible as Edale Railway Station is only a 5 min walk from Race HQ and the start line. We understand that this may be too tight for people travelling on the day though.

Participants travelling by vehicle can arrive at Race HQ anytime from 07:30 onwards. Parking is available to purchase online at registration. There is limited capacity though and so only those who have pre purchased will be allowed in. There are limited parking options in Edale so we highly advise getting the train to the event to avoid causing disruption to the local community and to help support our sustainability policy.

The race starts from Race HQ at 09:00. Competitors may deposit a drop bag, which will stored securely at Race HQ.

Afternoon
At the finish line, there will be food and drinks available to purchase and prize giving will take place. All campsite facilities will be available (including showers).
