The Ultraloop: Saturday 25 March

The Ultra Loop is Manchester's only looped ultra-marathon event. Not only is the race open to elite ultra-runners, it's also accessible for your average weekend runner. The event is structured so that every participant has the complete freedom to run from 1 loop (5KM) to 10 loops (50KM). Everyone signs up for the same entry fee, and can decide on the day how far they want to run. Most ultra-marathons are 50KM+ loops or 100KM in one direction, whereas with The Ultra Loop being just a 5KM route, it gives us the opportunity to have a vibrant event village at the looping point of the route. This will create an atmosphere that drives our participants to the finish line, and provides a positive experience for everyone involved. Along with a vibrant event, we are also partnering with several brands to provide participants with opportunities they may not otherwise get such as discounted training plans, gear, nutrition and more. For more information and to book, please visit the The Ultra Loop website.
