23 August 2020

Following the latest updates from the government this week, we’ve been discussing the best way forward and have decided to move the event date to Sunday 23rd August.

2020 will be the fourth running of Ultra:5K, a unique race format which introduces the element of strategy into your running. It takes place on Sunday 23rd August 2020 at Box End Park in Bedfordshire.

There are two distance options: a 5 x 5K and a 3 x 5K. The 5K route will be officially measured and certified. There are also team relay options for both events.

Participants have one hour to complete the 5K and recover before the next mass start. If you run a 20 minute 5k, then you have 40 minutes recovery before the next 5k to recover. Equally if you take 40 minutes to run 5k, you have 20 minute recovery time before the next race start. For full details, see our website.

The event winners will be decided based on the fastest average time over the five or three races.

Between the races there will be a holding area with food and drink available as well as the option of having soft tissue work, stretching, massage, etc.

Runners must be 17 or older on the day of the event.
