The Ice Ultra
As specialists in providing extreme challenges to ultra-runners around the world we at Beyond The Ultimate have created 4 incredible races, each coming together to form the Ultimate Ultra Race Series designed to provide exciting challenges for ultra-runners. The four races that make up the series are the Jungle Ultra, Mountain Ultra, Desert Ultra and Ice Ultra, with each race offering a different climate and terrain, the races pose unique demands on any ultra-runner. With locations including the Amazon Rainforest, Rocky Mountains, Namib Desert and Arctic Circle, our footraces take place in some of the world's most inhospitable yet truly breath-taking lanscapes around the world. Furthermore with each race containing a Red Jersey Stage, (a race within a race) and a camp style atmosphere, the Ultimate Ultra Race Series provides a friendly and exciting environment to compete in!
