Ultra North Challenge

Date: Saturday 05 June 2021

Looking for a challenge? Why not take part in this great community event.


Help raise vital funds for the hospice in our 30th Anniversary Year, whilst challenging yourself this summer.

Celebrate the history of the North East whilst taking part in the Ultra North Challenge. With two routes available, either 55km or 25km you can run, walk or jog these all-terrain routes and appreciate the renewal and reinvention of the North East.

Ultra-North 25 is designed to be a perfect challenge for half marathon runners looking for a fresh challenge. Whilst the Ultra-North 55 takes competitors on a tour of the region, passing iconic landmarks and following famous footpaths. The event is accessible and open to all, from seasoned runners or walkers seeking a challenge to first timers looking to push their limits.

Many of Newcastle’s landmarks are world famous, but Ultra North showcases the hidden gems the region has to offer. The route will provide a suitable challenge and perhaps some surprises along the way. All participants will be assured of a hero’s welcome as they cross the finish line upon completion.

Entries are now open and for a limited time only and are available at a special launch price. Discover what you are made of in 2021, visit ultranorth.co.uk.
