The Ultra will be a Virtual Race, 48km, 20 April to 26 April 2020. Run a total of 48km in 7 Days, when and where doesn’t matter. When you complete the challenge we send you your medal.
With all the challenges brought upon us by Covid-19, Irene Athletics Club has decided to virtually continue presenting the 3rd biggest ultra in South Africa.
Every athlete who has entered for the race will have the opportunity to run the 48km between 20 April and 26 April 2020. You can run when and where you like during these 7 days, just complete the total 48km before 23:59 on 26 April 2020. You can even run 8km for 6 days. Make up the distance as you wish. On completion we will send your special medal to your preferred address.
We were still lucky enough to change the T-shirt design intime. This will be a special once off t-shirt showing that you did this ultra on your own. If you have ordered one initially it will be delivered with your medal. You will also have the opportunity to order one now at R160.
